From the town’s First Nation’s roots, providing summer fishing camps for the Musqueam Peoples, to the lasting and impactful legacy of Japanese Canadians who made Steveston their home, the Steveston Historical Society has been collecting, displaying and telling the stories of this quaint village since 1976.
The Steveston Historical Society is passionate about bringing the past to life through interactive and tactile displays, ranging from exquisitely preserved buildings, powerful videos and walking tours that take visitors back in time.

With funds from the Gulf & Fraser Foundation, the Steveston Historical Society spearheaded an initiative called “Treading Through Time," which is a comprehensive brochure that is designed to take Steveston locals and visitors on a self-guided tour through the village. By highlighting the significant and meaningful physical markers in the village, the roots of Steveston’s past remain relevant to a new generation of people who live, work and make Steveston their home.
