Heritage Value
As housing developments extended north from Kingsway, pupil enrolments grew at Windsor and at Morley Schools so Brantford was built equidistant from the two to help ease enrolment problems. Brantford Elementary school opened in 1965 and was similar in structure to other schools built in Burnaby during this period - no basements, no second stories and no high stairways. Classrooms were built in a line and could easily be added to as enrolments increased. Brantford had room additions in 1969.

Heritage Value
Burnaby South and Burnaby North were Burnaby's first high schools. The first rooms of the school were built in 1922 on the same grounds as the Kingsway East Elementary School. In 1940, a two-storey building was erected and additions were made in 1963, 1967 and 1972. Kingsway East closed in 1925 and its buildings were used by the high school for Industrial Arts and Home Economics. In the early 1990s, a new "urban education centre" (Burnaby South/B.C. School for the Deaf) was opened, replacing the old Burnaby South High School.

Description
This memorial comprises a cenotaph and three tennis courts: the former a monument of British Columbia granite inscribed with the names of fifty-one students of Burnaby South High School who lost their lives in the Second World War; and the latter a living memorial to these former students.
Heritage Value
This memorial is important for its spiritual, symbolic, and cultural associations for the former students of Burnaby South High School, and for all youth in the community. The cenotaph is of personal significance to the families of those who lost their lives. The unusual combination of cenotaph and living memorial - the tennis courts - represents a rare statement of a community's commitment to not allow the sacrifice of its youth to be forgotten by providing an active facility which draw people to the place on a regular basis rather than just on occasions of remembrance. As such it is an important symbol of a humanitarian ethic. In combination with the Kingsway East School, now rehabilitated as the Alan Emmott Centre, this memorial represents a valuable haven of green-space and recreation in the high-density urban development that now surrounds it.
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of the Burnaby South High School Cenotaph & Memorial Tennis Courts include the: - location of the cenotaph adjacent to the living memorial - spatial association of this memorial and the remaining school building - physical fabric of both the granite monument and the tennis courts

Description
The Jacob and Margaret Wysong House is a two and one-half storey, wood-frame Arts and Crafts house with a hipped roof and hipped dormers. Symmetrical in massing, it is distinguished by its masonry verandah columns, foundations and chimneys. It is located on a corner lot on Sperling Avenue at Stanley Street in the Edmonds neighbourhood of South Burnaby.
Heritage Value
The Jacob and Margaret Wysong House is significant for illustrating the early development of the Edmonds neighbourhood, a speculative subdivision that was created and marketed during the pre-First World War real estate boom. The area’s proximity to New Westminster, coupled with extensive views and two newly developed streetcar lines, ensured that Edmonds attracted a wave of suburban development. The scale of this house is atypical of the usual suburban lots, and reflects the prominence of this location and its spectacular views. Set on a large lot, the Jacob and Margaret Wysong House is a grand estate home that is one of the earliest, and most prominent, in South Burnaby. This is also an exceptional example of Arts and Crafts architecture, displaying the use of native materials that was a hallmark of the style. The first owners were Jacob Wysong and his wife Margaret. Jacob Wysong, a local contractor, constructed the house in 1912. The stonework is exceptional, and the use of rough-cut granite and fieldstone, with overall shingle cladding, recalls the rustic vernacular common in Western park lodges, and evokes a country lifestyle in harmony with nature. The hipped roof was designed with a flat top that acted as a lookout tower that provided views of the surrounding landscape.
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of the Jacob and Margaret Wysong House include its: - prominent corner location in the Edmonds neighbourhood of South Burnaby - residential form, scale and massing as expressed by its two and one-half storey plus raised basement height, symmetrical plan, hipped roof with flat top, hipped dormers, and hipped roof over the full open front verandah with a central front gable - masonry elements such as rough-cut granite and fieldstone foundations, verandah columns, stair cheeks, and external and internal chimneys - wooden-frame construction including original cedar shingling on dormers and facing verandah, shingling on remainder of house under later stucco cladding, and surviving original dimensional trim facing verandah and on dormers - Arts and Crafts features such as the use of natural materials, open soffits and angled roof overhang - windows including: double-hung 18-over-1 wooden sash windows; multi-paned casement windows; French doors to verandah; and front door with glazed sidelights - associated landscape features including surrounding mature trees, hedges and perimeter plantings

Heritage Value
The years 1911-1912 saw great expansion and settlement in Burnaby and large public works projects were undertaken to service the growing community. One project that was determined to be a necessity was the construction of a proper highway between New Westminster and Vancouver. The Province and the Municipality agreed to share the costs of construction (with Burnaby paying 25% and the Province 75%) and so Kingsway was built to improve the current Vancouver Road. The road was named after the famous King's Way in London, England.

Description
The Kingsway East School is a two-storey wood-frame Arts and Crafts styled building. The school, and the adjacent cenotaph and memorial tennis courts, comprise Burnaby South Memorial Park.
Heritage Value
This school structure completed in 1913, the oldest surviving public education building in the city, was intended to be the auditorium and gymnasium for Burnaby’s first high school. However, because of the 1913 recession and the outbreak of the First World War, it was utilized as the Kingsway East Elementary School for the Edmonds District until 1921. Burnaby South High School opened here in 1922, and after it relocated this building was used for a variety of school purposes until it became redundant. The school was rehabilitated for community purposes in 2002-03 and renamed the Alan Emmott Centre to honor a former Mayor of Burnaby. The impressive scale of the Kingsway East School is indicative of the relative size of the community and its growing demand for schooling at the time of construction, illustrating the value that early community residents placed on education. Built to plans of the Burnaby School Board architect, Joseph Henry Bowman (1864-1943), it also indicates the individual values and design control exercised by the school board during this era. It is also significant for its Arts and Crafts style, allied to the typical Craftsman residential vocabulary, which was employed locally for school buildings of the Edwardian era. By using a common architectural vocabulary, this allowed the institution to reflect the values and aspirations of the local community. The Arts and Crafts style also demonstrated an allegiance to British educational antecedents and a demonstration of loyalty to the Mother Country.

Constructed in 1891 between Edmonds and Highland Park on the Central Park Interurban Line, the steam plant provided power to run the line, then operated by Westminster and Vancouver Tramway Company. The steam powerhouse was replaced in 1905 by a B.C. Electric substation which was put into operation to receive and distribute power from the B.C.E.R. Buntzen Lake power dam. Prior to Burnaby having its own Municipal Hall, Council meetings were often held at the boarding house adjacent to the powerhouse and in 1892, Burnaby’s first Council meeting was held at the boarding house in 1892.

Description
'The Gables' is a one and one-half storey plus basement residence with a distinctive cross-gambrel roof. The foundations and first storey facade are constructed of granite rubble-stone with raised pointing, and the remainder of the house is clad in cedar shingles. It is now part of the Tudor Grove residential complex.
Heritage Value
The residence is valued as the house of John Mackie (1879-1937) and Christina Mackie (1881-1959) and is significant as the last house remaining from the original Highland Park subdivision. The area was first laid out in 1902, and then remarketed by C.L. Merritt and Company in 1911 as 'Gilley Park - the Suburb Beautiful.' Located on the B.C. Electric Railway interurban line, this was one of many middle-class commuter suburbs in Burnaby promoted during the Edwardian era. These suburbs were reflective of the City Beautiful Movement, a process of urbanization that sought to create morally, socially and aesthetically uplifting civic environments. The site is significant as a rare example of a modest residence incorporating high quality Arts and Crafts stylistic elements. Unusual for a house of this moderate scale, the foundation, first storey walls and chimney are constructed of rough-dressed granite. John Mackie was a stone mason, and it is assumed that he undertook the work himself. The cross gambrel roof is an unusual feature, relatively uncommon in B.C., from which the house derives its name, ‘The Gables.’
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of 'The Gables' include its: - location in the original Highland Park subdivision - vernacular residential form, scale and massing as exemplified by the one and one-half storey plus basement height, inset porch and symmetrical, rectangular plan - cross-gambrel roof with closed eaves and returned lower edges, clad with cedar shingles - Arts and Crafts influence as exemplified in its use of natural materials such as rough-dressed granite rubble-stone foundation, first storey walls and chimney, and cedar shingle siding on the upper storey - other elements of masonry construction, such as the granite window-box brackets, granite stair cheeks and granite interior chimney with rustic cap - wooden-sash windows - house name, ‘The Gables,’ carved into a granite block on the left-hand pier of the front porch

Heritage Value
The street we know as Kingsway is one of the legacies of the Royal Engineers' military defences for New Westminster. The fear of an American attack prompted the construction of the False Creek trail - later known as Vancouver Road and now Kingsway - in 1860 to connect the capital city to the ice-free salt water harbour at English Bay.
