History/Biography
The Burnaby Historical Society was founded in 1957. Over the years, the Burnaby Historical Society developed a community archives by collecting, compiling and preserving various material with historical value to the City of Burnaby. The Society gathered miscellaneous documents, photographs and other items while also soliciting and acquiring entire collections or groups of archival records. The Century Park Museum Association was founded under the auspices of the Burnaby Centennial '71 Committee, to administer Burnaby's Centennial '71 Commemorative Project, Heritage Village. In 1991, the Historical Society was provided a permanent space to house their growing collection at the Burnaby Village Museum and they continued to collect and expand their holdings.
After the creation of the City of Burnaby Archives in 2001, the Burnaby Historical Society and the City of Burnaby began discussing the possibility of uniting the two collections. In February, 2007, an agreement was signed between the two institutions which resulted in the merger of the Community Archives with the City Archives. All records and photographs that had been collected by the Historical Society were transferred into the custody of the City and were moved from the Burnaby Village Museum to the City Archives in the McGill Branch Library. While the Society continues to function as a community group, it no longer acts as a collecting body.
