Vancouver Abbeyfield Houses

There are two Vancouver Abbeyfield homes - the Heritage House and the Coach House - located in the Marpole community of Vancouver. The houses are located side by side at 1275 West 67th Avenue (on the corner of 67th Avenue and Hudson Street) close to shopping, buses and the Marpole Seniorsí Center.

The Heritage House, built in 1912 as a private residence, served at one time as the first childrenís hospital in Vancouver and was then converted to flats.  In the early 1990ís the house had been slated for demolition to make way for an apartment building, but the Marpole residents did not want to see a piece of their history disappear. Their desire to retain the Heritage House coincided with the search for a property by the Abbeyfield Houses of Vancouver Society.

As the property was large enough for a second house, two houses were developed by the City of Vancouver, and both houses were opened September 1993.  The second house was named the Coach House.
