Scope and Content
Photograph of the Thomas O. and Frances Townley mansion known as Deerholme built in 1913 at Deer Lake by Vancouver's pioneer and 1901 Mayor, Colonel Thomas Owen Townley, and his wife Frances. The home was designed by their son Fred Laughton Townley, who had just returned from the University of Pennsylvania where he had received a degree in architecture. The Townley's enjoyed their estate until 1920 when they rented the house to the Cunningham family before selling the property to the Vancouver Anglican College.The college held the building until 1940, when it was again sold and was owned by various owners who came and went. Finally, the Loftus family sold the property to the City of Burnaby in 1979. The house remains leased as a private residence and was dedicated as a civic heritage site in 1992.
