Image from New Westminster Museum and Archives activity in Things to do in New Westminster

The Fire of 1898 Display at the New Westminster Museum showcases artifacts taken from the rubble from the fire that devastated the City's downtown core.

The Fire of 1898 started at 11:00pm on September 10th of that year at the Brackman & Ker's Wharf and burned down most of the Downtown Core from the waterfront between 4th and 10th Streets up to Royal Avenue where the Museum and Archives are located. The items shown here are a burnt teacup and saucer recovered from a home, a fragment from a bell as well as melted metal from the chimes that were in the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
