Steveston Historical Society receives grant

One of the city’s best-known historical groups has received a BC community gaming grant.
Dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of Steveston, the Steveston Historical Society on Wednesday received a cheque for $13,700 from Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap.
Organized in 1976, the society has since 1977 operated (along with the City of Richmond) the Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre which is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Built during Steveston’s heyday, the historic building at 3811 Moncton St. was the community’s first bank operating as the Northern Bank in 1905. It then became a Royal Bank for almost half a century.
In 1966, Dr. James Campbell operated a medical practice there until selling the building in 1977.
$9.99 for 8 slices of classic pizza or a whole pizza (Hawaiian, Pepperoni, Veggie)
