Heritage Value
Between 1905 and 1924, the Broadview neighbourhood in Burnaby was settled by almost 100 families who saw the advantage of living in an area that was served by two railway lines - the B.C. Electric Railway and the Great Northern Railway. Touted as being only a 20 minute car ride to the city centre, this neighbourhood expanded during the early 1920s with the promise of a new direct access road to the city being built by the Great Northern Railway company and new blocks being opened up on two government reserves adjoining it.

Heritage Value
Burnaby residents had long been asking for a hospital in their municipality so on July 14, 1943, the first meeting of the Burnaby Hospital Fund-raising Committee was held at the Canadian Legion Hall at Royal Oak and Kingsway. In 1947, the group was incorporated as the Burnaby Hospital Society and after extensive lobbying and fundraising, the Burnaby General Hospital opened its doors on October 30, 1952. The site was provided by the Municipality of Burnaby on 17.5 acres of parkland on a small hill in the Cascade Heights area. In its first year, the hospital admitted 5010 patients and delivered 944 babies.

Heritage Value
The Cascade-Schou neighbourhood, sometimes referred to as the Cascade Heights area, includes both the Burnaby General Hospital site, the Discovery Park facilities and is bordered on its eastern boundary by BCIT. Despite these health and science developments, the neighbourhood can still be considered to be a residential community. The housing stock includes single family homes as well as newer multi-family residences that developed throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

The Cascades Drive-In Theatre was Canada's first drive-in and was started by George and William Steel and Joe and Art Johnson in 1946. Built along Grandview Highway (Canada Way) near Smith Street, the theatre opened on August 30, 1946. In 1977, the theatre was purchased by Don Soutar, Al Chappell and Norm Green and continued to operate until 1980. The property was then redeveloped as Cascades Village - a large condominium complex.

Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
Typical of the Arts and Crafts style, the house has its original front gabled roof, triangular eave brackets, full open front verandah and pointed bargeboards. The house has received some alterations, including the addition of asbestos shingles over the original siding. It is one of the few surviving early homes of the Broadview subdivision which was established in 1911. This was the long-term home of Hugh McCallum Senior (1873-1960), a steam engineer from Scotland, and his wife Mary (née Baxter, 1875-1958). Hugh continued to live in the house after Mary’s death.

Description
School building.
Heritage Value
This school was built to replace tents and temporary buildings that had previously been used for the local children of the Broadview neighbourhood. The site was donated to the School Board in 1911 by the real estate firm of Leibly & Blumer in anticipation of increased settlement in the district. The school was named after the street, which had been named after Nicolai Schou, Burnaby’s second Reeve. Originally designed in the Arts and Crafts style, the character of the school was altered in 1964 when its original siding was covered in stucco and the windows were replaced, but has retained its original form and massing, including its front gabled entrance with recessed doorway and twinned square columns. Of special note is the name of the school above the front entry.This school was designed by Joseph H. Bowman (1864-1943), a specialist in school buildings, who was retained as the school board architect for South Vancouver and Burnaby. One of his first designs for Burnaby was a utilitarian two-storey school that could be built with two classrooms and later expanded to eight rooms as the district’s school population grew; five schools from this design were built in 1908, and then four others in modified versions between 1910-16, including this school.
