The Heritage Abbotsford Society has announced a new project to restore the 145-year-old Turner House, a historic residence in the city. 

Turner House was relocated to Clayburn Park several years ago and, once the restoration is completed, will serve the community as part of Clayburn Park's new developments. Work on the project began in mid-October and will continue for several years. 

Executive Director of Heritage Abbotsford Christina Reid spoke with CIVL about the holistic approach they plan to take with the restoration and the history of Turner House. 

The collaborative project with the City of Abbotsford invites secondary and post-secondary students and community members to participate in webinars, workshops and hands-on classes on the restoration of heritage homes.
