Heritage Vancouver Society

Heritage Vancouver Garden Party
June 25, 2014 - 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Hosted by Larry & Sherry Killam, in their Southlands Garden

Join Heritage Vancouver and our guests for a spectacular evening of wine, hors d'oeuvres, and conversation in this beautiful garden. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and mix with community leaders, architects, elected officials and heritage supporters while at the same time demonstrating your support for the many worthwhile projects undertaken by the Heritage Vancouver Society.

Larry and Sherry Killam’s home is an English dairy barn, in the Norman architectural style, dating from approximately 1640, imported from Portsmouth, England and converted to an open-plan house with views of the garden from every side.

This is a unique opportunity to spend time in this beautiful private garden and also to view the living and dining areas of this historic building. The garden and house were created 20 years ago partly within the vestiges of a Cornelia Oberlander garden designed in 1961 in relation to the mid-century modern house on the same property. 

Structured around mature feature trees from that original design, the present garden centres around two large plant-filled ponds. Tucked away in the southwest corner of the garden is a reconstructed 1908 English iron greenhouse rescued from the Shannon Estate on Granville Street when first redeveloped in the 1960s.
