Residential building.
Heritage Value
This Craftsman bungalow was built for the Neville family. Richard Neville (1884-1950) served as a Burnaby councillor in 1924 and is remembered as the man who gave the CCF party (now the NDP) land on Maple Avenue on which to build Jubilee Labour Hall. He worked as a tile layer for the O’Neill Company and was married to Ada Neville (née Cook, 1885-1970). Ada Neville still lived in this house at the time of her death. Typical of the Craftsman style, the house has a side gabled roof with large front gable dormer, triangular eave brackets, an open arched front verandah and a textural mix of siding including cedar shingle on the main floor and lapped siding at the foundation.

In 1950, the Burnaby School Inspector reported: "the recent development of a number of large housing projects and the continuing growth of new homes in settled areas are compelling the Board to consider a building program of major proportions...now under construction, including McPherson Park with 21 classrooms." Enrolment in its first year was 686 students. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, junior high schools were replaced with expanded secondary schools encompassing grades 7 through 12; as a result, McPherson Park Junior High was closed and Burnaby South Secondary School opened.

Alta Vista, named for its high views of the Fraser Valley, rapidly grew during the period 1910-1912, seeing its settlement jump from about a dozen buildings in 1910 to about four hundred by the end of 1912. Home-seekers were attracted to its location just a short walk from the B.C.E.R. line at Royal Oak and Highland Park and easily accessible to both New Westminster and Vancouver.

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 primarily single-family subdivision and development in the Clinton-Glenwood Neighbourhood occurred during the building boom of the 1950s. Later development fell under the guidelines established in the Royal Oak Community Plan (adopted in 1999) and resulted in an increase in the number of multi-family units.
