Irving House Museum (1865)

Irving House is the oldest intact house in the Lower Mainland.

It is still on the original property where Captain William Irving had it built in 1865. Since 1950 the City of New Westminster has owned the house and it has operated as a local heritage centre. Irving House remains a symbol of New Westminster’s prosperity and optimism during a time of rapid change and uncertainty in the colony.

Rocky Point Ice Cream

A popular Metro Vancouver ice cream-maker, Rocky Point Ice Cream started out in 1997 as a summer ice cream shop operating out of a tiny kiosk. Their ice cream was provided by another small batch operator in Vancouver and together they would come up with new flavours including our famous K9 Doggie Ice Cream.

It has taken Rocky Point Ice Cream 22 years to find its next great location – but they have found one in New Westminster.
