Helmcken House and St. Ann's Schoolhouse

Helmcken House was built by Dr. John Sebastian Helmcken, a surgeon with the Hudson’s Bay Company. It is one of the oldest houses in British Columbia still on its original site. St. Ann’s Schoolhouse, built in 1844 in the HBC’s Red River style, may be the oldest building still standing in Victoria. Visit these two exceptional heritage buildings for a peek into Victoria’s past.
