Description

This home in First Shaughnessy was built in 1912 for Angus Mcgillivary Creelman, a superintendent with the CPR. Creelman’s contracting company, A.G. Creelman and Company built several projects in Vancouver as well as the Mewata Armoury in Calgary. Originally from Nova Scotia, Creelman moved to Vancouver in 1904 and resided in this house from 1913 until his death in 1929. Creelman’s second wife, Lenora, continued to reside in the house for many years after his death.

Laurier Avenue was named after Sir Wilfrid Laurier (1841-1919), who served as prime minister of Canada from 1886-1911.
