Discover Surrey’s Historic Past
Since the 1860’s, local history and heritage have surrounded us. This includes the traditions and sacred places of the First Nations people, the road and trails cut through the wilderness that once covered the land, houses and farm buildings, and other structures that have been build over the last century. Surrey’s Museum & Archives, the Historic Stewart Farm, and the Fraser Valley Historic Railway Society are a few great examples of places where you can discover Surrey’s rich history.
