Overview

Designated heritage site in 1983, this Arts and Crafts House was restored to 1925. Featuring period gardens, heritage gallery, “Joey’s Playhouse” and access to Mill Lake. Abbotsford's important early industries are represented in Trethewey House: it was built with the finest fir lumber produced at the mill on Mill Lake. The bricks used in the chimneys and fireplaces were made with clay mined on Sumas Mountain and processed at Clayburn Village, B.C.'s first company town.

Beautiful old house with a great story. I really like the old style house and all the period furniture. The lady there was very informative about the history of the old house and family that built it.
