Back to Basics
Historic Stewart Farm is a picturesque site telling the story of the Stewarts, an early Surrey pioneer family that lived on the site from 1880–1944. Complete with a farmhouse, sprawling farm grounds and outbuildings typical of early Surrey farm life, it is as if the Stewarts and their animals just picked up and left. The site is open to visitors to experience Surrey long ago- completely unplugged. A vibrant, family friendly destination, Historic Stewart Farm invites drop-in tours and holds many programs and events.
What to Expect
As you drive in off tree-lined, winding Crescent Road, the rural scene will sneak up on you. When you open the original stained glass door, the smell of baking on the wood stove will invite you in. Costumed staff will greet you, offering information and a tour or the option to tour on your own. The antique floor boards will creak beneath your step as you imagine a family laughing, dining and living in the house.
Like an invited guest, you will take in small details in each room and be reminded that, like you, these people experienced the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
Most days there are crafts and a dress up station upstairs. The grounds are open every day, even if the farmhouse is not, with scenic water views and lots of space for kids to run around or try the authentic water pump. Expect to spend at least an hour on site and remember appropriate footwear on rainy days. Be sure to check our events as well.
Located in South Surrey, just 45 minutes from Vancouver and 10 minutes from the Pacific Border Crossing, Historic Stewart Farm is beautifully situated in Elgin Heritage Park on the banks of the Nicomekl River. After touring the farm grounds and buildings, consider a nature trail walk through the park. Please note farm hours differ from park hours.
Don’t miss Royal Victorian Party on May 22 in celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday. Featuring a royal impersonator, traditional dance performances, croquet and refreshments, it is a lovely way to spend a Sunday with the family.
