Description
Church building.
Heritage Value
This Baptist congregation originally held services in a tent at the corner of McGregor Avenue and Portland but they soon were able to build a small church. A membership drive by Pastor Arthur James Bowbrick (1875-1961) was so successful that the congregation was able build this fine structure, prominently located at the corner of Victory Street. Although it has been altered with later additions and stucco over the original siding, the original windows and the rooftop belfry remain.

Heritage Value
The Oakalla Prison Farm opened in 1912 and was hailed as the most modern facility of its kind. Initially designed to hold 150 men and 50 women, by the 1950s, the population was well over 1000. A working farm, the prison had its own dairy, vegetable gardens and livestock. From the beginning, the location of Oakalla on 185 acres of scenic land next to Burnaby's Deer Lake was the source of contention with residents petitioning the government to relocate the prison and by 1979 it was decided to close the farm and 64 acres of land were transferred to Burnaby for inclusion on the Deer Lake Park. In 1991, Oakalla closed forever and the buildings were demolished to make way for a new residential housing development and an expansion of the park.

Film footage created by Harry Pride documenting the move of BC Electric Interurban Tram 1223 from Royal Oak warehouse (6857 Royal Oak Avenue) to the Burnaby Village Museum (6501 Deer Lake Avenue). Restoration of the tram was undertaken by the "Friends of Interurban 1223" between 2001 and 2007 at the Royal Oak warehouse before being moved to the newly built tram barn at Burnaby Village Museum. The top portion of the tram and two tram trucks were loaded onto flatbeds and early Friday February 16, 2007 the tram was moved to the museum arriving just before 5 am. Members of the Friends of Interurbran 1223 along with Burnaby Village Museum staff gathered at the museum in anticipation of it being moved to its final destination. A 200-ton crane and a crew from Nikel Brothers house movers hoisted the Interurban 1223 into position before it was winched inside the tram barn.
