Welcome to Steveston Museum
In 1914 and 1915, Albert Chilton and his family lived upstairs in the Northern Crown Bank building. Today the building is known as the Steveston Museum. For a glimpse of Steveston Village - and our building - in 1914 and 1915, please watch the video below.

About Steveston Museum
Our mandate is to preserve, promote and tell the history of Steveston.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum, Post Office and Visitor Centre are currently closed.
Town Square Park
Surrounding the museum is Town Square Park that was remodeled in 2016 and combines English Frontier Garden-style at the entrance of the park and transitions into a Japanese-inspired park.
Highlights of the park include a Wakayama sister-city friendship cherry blossom tree, a dog bowl grave marker commemorating a locally beloved dog named Big Red, a torii-style gate, zen-style paving and a raised moss garden. The moss garden has a suikinkutsu water feature, one of only two in Canada.
