Irving House - 1865




Irving House - 1865





302 Royal Avenue, New Westminster, BC.

Description of Historic Place:

Irving House is a large, one and one-half storey plus basement wood-frame residence, designed in the Gothic Revival style, located on its original site at the corner of Royal Avenue and Merivale Street in the New Westminster neighbourhood of Albert Crescent. Irving House is remarkable for the extent to which its original exterior and interior elements have survived. Operated as an historic house museum, it also includes a collection of many original furnishings from the Irving family.

Heritage Value:

Irving House is a direct link to the earliest pioneer development of New Westminster. The city was founded by the Royal Engineers as the colonial capital of the Mainland colony of British Columbia in 1859. After the Royal Engineers were disbanded in 1863, many of them stayed to help build New Westminster as a center of trade and commerce. Irving House dates from the time of the first development of civilian structures in the new community. Completed in April, 1865, it is one of the oldest extant buildings in the province.

Irving House is valued for its association with Captain William and Elizabeth Jane Irving and their family. Captain Irving arrived in New Westminster in 1859 and established a successful riverboat trading business on the Lower Fraser River where he became known as "King of the River." Irving invested in the B.C. and Victoria Steam Navigation Company, which later became the Canadian Pacific Navigation Company, and was a leading citizen in New Westminster, a Mason, a founding member of the St. Andrew's Society, an honorary member of the Hyack Fire Company, a member of the committee to study the terms of B.C.'s union with the Dominion of Canada, and a city councillor. Ownership passed through three generations of the Irving family before the house was acquired by the City of New Westminster in 1950.

This house is of architectural importance as a fine example of Gothic Revival architecture and as an example of Mid-Victorian era domestic taste, and reflects the status attained by the Irvings in the early days of the city. It is a testament to the skill of architect James Syme (1832-1881), who appears to have adapted the design from a pattern book, and the abilities of its builder, Thomas W. Graham. The interior retains many original features, including wallpaper, plasterwork, furnishings and carpets, that are important as a demonstration of the high degree of design and craftsmanship that was available in New Westminster in the 1860s.

The heritage value of this house also lies in its interpretive value, as the oldest historic house museum in B.C. The museum was established in 1950 and is an important cultural feature for the interpretation of New Westminster's heritage to the public. On display in the house is a collection of period furniture, including a number of original pieces from the Irving family. The City of New Westminster continues to own the house and operates it as part of the civic museum and archives. It represents an important period in the growth of the City and demonstrates to visitors the lifestyle, possessions, and aspirations of the pioneers who helped to establish the City of New Westminster.

And Some Can Pot Begonias




And Some Can Pot Begonias





Our England is a garden that is full of stately views,
Of borders, beds and shrubberies and lawns and avenues,
With statues on the terraces and peacocks strutting by;
But the Glory of the Garden lies in more than meets the eye.

For where the thick laurels grow, along the thin red wall,
You will find the tool- and potting-sheds which are the heart of all;
The cold-frames and the hot-houses, the dungpits and the tanks,
The rollers, carts and drain-pipes, with the barrows and the planks.

And there you'll see the gardners, the men and 'prentice boys
Told off to do as they are bid and to it without noise;
For, except when seeds are planted and we shout to scare the birds,
The Glory of the Garden it abideth not in words.

And some can pot begonias and some can bud a rose,
And some are hardly fit to trust with anything that grows;
But they can roll and trim the lawns and sift the sand and loam,
For the Glory of the Garden occupieth all who come.

Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made
By singing:--"Oh, how beautiful!" and sitting in the shade,
While better men than we go out and start their working lives
At grubbing weeds from gravel-paths with broken dinner-knives.

There's not a pair of legs so thin, there's not a head so thick,
There's not a hand so weak and white, nor yet a heart so sick,
But it can find some needful job that's crying to be done,
For the Glory of the Garden glorifieth every one.

Then seek your job with thankfulness and work till further orders,
It it's only netting strawberries or killing slugs on borders;
And when your back stops aching and your hands begin to harden,
You will find yourself a partner in the Glory of the Garden.

Oh, Adam was a gardener, and God who made him sees
That half a proper gardener's work is done upon his knees,
So when your work is finished, you can wash your hands and pray
For the Glory of the Garden, that it may not pass away!
For the Glory of the Garden, that it may not pass away!

The Glory of the Garden
Rudyard Kipling
