AAA Editor Notes
Old Hastings Mill Store Museum is at 1575 Alma St. in Hastings Mill Park. The first industrial facility on the south shore of what is now Vancouver, the mill was constructed to serve the early sawmilling community and is Vancouver's oldest building. On June 13, 1886, it was one of the few buildings to withstand the ravages of the Great Vancouver Fire. Facing demolition in 1930, it was barged to its present site in the Point Grey neighborhood and converted to a museum. Among its varied collections are relics of early Vancouver pioneers, an extensive collection of First Nation native basketry and tools and a well-preserved hansom cab.
