Massey, church on New West heritage tour

The Massey Theatre and Queen's Avenue United Church will be featured in this year's New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society heritage tour.

The Massey turns 65 this year and is slated for demolition in 2015 as part of a redeveloped New Westminster secondary. The church is 55 years old and the society describes it as a "fine example of mid-century modern architecture."

Homes on the tour, which will be held May 25, include an 1891 Victorian house on a hidden lane in lower Queen's Park and a 1939 home built by a B.C. premier.

Tickets are $40 and will be available starting May 3 online at www.newwestheritage.org or at Royal City Colours, Cadeaux Gifts, Irving House and GardenWorks–Mandeville in Burnaby.
