Description
Located on Rumble Street in the Alta Vista neighbourhood, the Roy and Catherine Cummins House is a one and one-half storey, front-gabled rustic Arts and Crafts house, distinguished by the use of log construction and fieldstone verandah columns.
Heritage Value
The Roy and Catherine Cummins House is valued for its association with the early settlement of Burnaby. Its construction is linked to the opening of the Burnaby Lake Interurban line, which ran through the central part of Burnaby, providing access between Vancouver and New Westminster. The accessibility of the area, combined with spectacular views of the Fraser River, made Alta Vista a desirable Edwardian era middle-class neighbourhood. The house was built in 1912 for Roy Franklin Cummins and his wife, Catherine Emma Cummins (née Cook), shortly after their marriage. Roy Cummins was a lineman with the B.C. Electric Railway Company, an economic driving force in Burnaby. The Roy and Catherine Cummins House is a unique and sophisticated local example of a rustic Arts and Crafts structure. Roy Cummins constructed the house from logs cleared for the construction of Rumble Street; the house is also unique for its use of local fieldstone for its verandah columns and chimney. Reminiscent of park lodge architecture, it exemplifies the semi-wild nature of the area as it was being opened for subdivision. It is also an indication of how far Burnaby was removed from the more urban lifestyles and attitudes of Vancouver and New Westminster.
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of the Roy and Catherine Cummins House include its: - location on a steeply sloping site in the Alta Vista neighbourhood of Burnaby - residential form, scale and massing as expressed by its one and one-half storey height plus full basement, front-gabled roof and shed dormer, full open front verandah and partial rear verandah - peeled log construction including notched corner posts, log verandah roof framing and log balustrades - masonry elements including fieldstone verandah columns and internal chimney, and board-formed concrete foundations with fieldstone aggregate - rustic Arts and Crafts features such as the use of natural materials, tapered columns, front door with sidelights and exposed eave purlins - original windows, including wooden sash casement windows in multiple assembly with continuous transoms - interior features including fir-panelled walls, wooden mouldings and fieldstone fireplace - associated landscape features including terraced stone walls

The new Suncrest subdivision developed in the early 1950s, resulting in 312 new homes in 1951, with an additional 100 being planned. As a result, enrolment pressure resulted in the construction of Suncrest School in 1953. Additions to the original structure were made in 1954 and a library, change rooms and staffroom were added in 1969.

Sussex Avenue school was another school built during the peak expansion years of the 1950s and early 1960s. Burnaby's population was growing at such a fast pace during that decade that 10 new schools were built, and existing schools were expanded. Sussex Avenue School opened with 304 pupils. By the 1970s, student enrolment had slowed considerably from its peak and as a result, a number of schools - including Sussex - were closed.

The Sussex-Nelson Neighbourhood is located just south of Metrotown and in 1980 was characterised as the most populated of all of Burnaby's Planning Study areas. The area immediately south of Metrotown was initially developed as post-war 1950s housing stock, while the sector south of Rumble was developed after the 1960s and 1970s as single-family housing.

Heritage Value
Designed to simulate a Norman cottage, the most distinctive feature of this eclectic bungalow is its round entrance tower with a conical shaped roof. Other distinctive features include rolled roof edges clad with steam-bent shingles to resemble a thatched roof, and round-arched windows surrounded with initiation voussoirs. The traditional character reflects the Storybook Cottage movement popular in the years between the two World Wars. It was built for Vincent Esmond Dodd (1913-1985), a plumber and electrician, and his wife Edna Mary Dodd (née Engeseth). Edna continued to live in the house after Vincent’s death in 1985.

Residential building.
Heritage Value
This home was built in 1925 by William Leslie Burdick (1878-1937) and Esther Robina Burdick (née Armstrong, 1875-1964) who came to Burnaby from Manitoba to retire. Burdick was a prominent Winnipeg real estate agent; he retired in 1923, and contracted “Sleeping Sickness” the following year, which likely prompted a move to the more temperate west coast. Burdick became Reeve of Burnaby in 1929 and pressed for the development of the Deer Lake area as a great park featuring such amenities as a racetrack and water sports. During his tenure, this Craftsman-style home was regarded as a Burnaby showplace. He died in 1937 and Esther lived in this house until her own death in 1964. While the exterior of the house has been altered by a later coat of stucco over the original siding, it retains many original features such as its full-width verandah with tapered granite columns and piers, and stone-clad foundations and chimney.
