Heritage Value
When the Barnet Mill began operations in 1899, the mill authorities opened a small school to accommodate the children of employees. The school was located in a remodelled harness-room beside the mill and Miss Phoebe Spragge was the first teacher at a salary of $40.00 per month. By 1907, the school had been moved to a purpose-built building where it remained in operation until the early 1950s.

History/Biography
Orville Glen LaFavor was born in Willow City, North Dakota on May 31, 1903 to Harvey M. LaFavor. On April 20, 1924, Orville married Cathryn Arlou "Kate" Lewis. In that same year, Orville and Kate moved to Barnet Village to join Harvey and his wife. Orville and Kate had five children who were all born in Barnet: Lewis in September 1925, Irene in December 1927, Clyde Martin in July 1930, Florence Alice in March 1933 and Cathryn Bernice on April 24, 1934. Orville worked as a trimmer for the Barnet Lumber Company. He and his family lived at "Number 10" on the Barnet property. In 1924 he began working at the mills and retired in 1960. During the war, he made blackout blinds and worked as a warden or home guard in Vancouver. Kate LaFavor stayed at home to look after the five children. All of the children went to Barnet School until grade five, when they had to bus up to Capitol Hill in North Burnaby. Once evictions began in Barnet in 1953, Orville bought the house from the municipality and moved it to Port Coquitlam. Orville's brother, Vern Victor LaFavor, married Irene Winnifred "Winnie" Warner on August 6, 1928. Clyde and Lou LaFavor also worked in the mill. Fred Marshall and his brother Roy Marshall lived and worked at the mill and were uncles to the LaFavor children. Harvey LaFavor, the grandfather of the children, worked as a millwright and had a section in the village for gardening, which he tended to regularly. He had horses that worked with him at the mill and later on the construction of Barnet Road, allowing him to make money during the Depression. During a strike for higher wages at the Barnet Sawmill, Harvey was badly beaten. Murray Glen "Bud" LaFavor was born on December 13, 1944 in New Westminster. He had four sisters: Irene, Catherine, Carol and Rene. He worked as a volunteer fireman for 25 years and was employed by the District of 100 Mile House. He died in 2009. Lewis LaFavor, son of Orville and Kate, joined the navy and survied World War II. Catherine Bernice (LaFavor) Nelson, daughter of Orville and Kate, died July 7, 2011 in Nelson, British Columbia.

History/Biography
John Lawrence Fish was born in 1904 at Oldham, Lancashire, England. His father, Samuel, first immigrated to Canada 1909, eventually bringing his family to Davie Street, Vancouver in 1919. In 1924, John Lawrence Fish started working for the Barnet Lumber Company. After working six months at Hanbury Lumber Company in Vancouver in 1926, John came back to the Barnet Mill until 1927 when he began working for the Nichols Chemical plant. Lucy Isabelle Currie was born in Vancouver in 1911 to Harvey and Jane May “Jennie” (Laidlaw) Currie. After graduating from Magee High School, she studied teaching at the Normal School, then went to work at the Compensation Board. In 1942 John Lawrence Fish and Lucy Isabelle Currie were married at Ryerson Church in Kerrisdale, Vancouver. After John and Lucy married, they moved to an apartment at 4095 East Hastings Street in Burnaby. Their daughter, Rosemary Ann Fish was born 1943 and their son, Alan John Fish was born in 1945. In 1947 or 1948 the family of four moved to an apartment at Barnet. Before long, they moved into a house at Nichols Road. By 1956, they were living in house number 28 on the Nichols property. Alan Fish and his sister Rosemary grew up at Barnet, roaming freely with the other Barnet children around the area of Nichols and the beaches west of the plant. The Fish siblings were taken to school on the Barnet school bus; they attended Rosser Elementary School, Westridge Elementary School, Sperling Elementary School, Kensington Junior High School and Burnaby North High School. As a young adult, Alan worked weekends as a boiler house fireman at the Bestwood shingle mill from 1963 to 1966. He worked at the Nichols Chemical plant from 1966 to 1967. John Lawrence Fish worked for the Nichol Chemical plant for over forty years. On November 3, 1968 he was in an accident at the plant from which he suffered first, second and third degree burns. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital on December 16, 1968. Rosemary Ann Fish married Larry Meech. They were living together at Barnet while finishing college when Rosemary’s father died. The Meeches then bought a house in Capitol Hill and Rosemary’s brother Alan and mother Lucy moved to an apartment at Westridge. Lucy Isabelle (Currie) Fish passed away in 1974.
