Elgin Heritage Park is located in Surrey, British Columbia and houses the historic Stewart farm. The farm focuses on the time between 1890-1920 and includes the finished farmhouse, a pole barn with agricultural tools and machinery from the era, a boathouse, threshing shed, root cellar, gardens and an orchard. At certain times, there are site interpretators in Victorian costumes who provide tours of the house and grounds. Nowadays, the farm serves as a place where families can get together and enjoy activities, special annual events, programs and just simply explore. The farmhouse was built in 1894 by John Stewart on the banks of the Nicomekl River and features a wrap-around verandah, parlour, dining room and kitchen with a woodburning stove. Tours of the farmhouse and the grounds include several buildings:
- POLE BARN | Built in 1900, the barn was used to store hay, machinery and once housed horses, a bull, cows and pigs. It is one of the last of its kind and today displays antique agricultural tools.
- STEWART BARN | Built around 1900, it once stored a threshing machine and today is a program and exhibition hall.
- BOATHOUSE | This building is used to display the old Hadden crab boat and is used to illustrate the oyster farming and crab fishing industry along the Nicomekl River and Crescent Beach region.
- HERITAGE GARDENS & ORCHARD | See vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers once grown by local farmers a century ago including pumpkins, carrots, beans, heritage roses, snapdragons, calendulas, sunflowers and twenty-seven varieties of heritage apple, plum and pear trees.
