Discover your home's history

Home history research is one of the fastest growing research trends at the City of Vancouver Archives in recent years. The Archives has a variety of records and other materials that document the history of the homes in Vancouver.

The municipalities of Point Grey and South Vancouver (much of which included the current area of East Vancouver) were separate until they amalgamated into the City of Vancouver in 1929. Our holdings contain records of these two earlier municipalities, however, the available records are more limited.
