Scope and Content
Photograph of "Overlynn", built by Charles J. Peter in 1909. Charles J. Peter was the manager of G.F. & J. Galt Company, and he pioneered the development of the Vancouver Heights area in North Burnaby, as he believed that it was one of the most picturesque districts in Greater Vancouver. Peter developed his own beautiful estate with the hope that this would be an incentive to lure buyers to the subdivision. The house remained as the Peter home until 1936, when the estate was sold to the Sisters of Charity of Halifax, a Catholic order which had moved to Vancouver Heights in 1927 to operate a school. The mansion became their convent and new girls' school known as Seton Academy. The mansion's original conservatory was demolished and a two-storey addition was constructed. In 1970 when the school closed, Overlynn was purchased by Action Line Housing Society which developed the senior's development on the property. It was designated by Burnaby Council in 1995 and was the first heritage building in B.C. to have its interior features protected.
