Long Description:
A Presence from the Past

Since Kelowna’s inception in 1905, development has spread outward from the original business area along Bernard Avenue. In the Bernard-Lawrence Neighbourhood just east of Downtown, there remains a concentrated inventory of heritage buildings in a variety of architectural styles favored over the past 100 years.

Many of these buildings also have historical associations with the city’s pioneer families-early residents who, through civic involvement or commerce, shaped the city we know today.

Guided by one of the brochures in the rack below, you are invited to take a walking tour of the Neighbourhood to view the many buildings that are recognized by the City of Kelowna Heritage Register (Kelowna.ca) as having significant heritage value to the community. These buildings serve as important connections to the past and tangible reminders of Kelowna’s economic, social, and architectural history.
