In May 2013 Locals moved into the newly remodeled Comox Valley Heritage building
known to local residents as THE OLD HOUSE. Great care was given to
preserve as much of the original building as possible and to blend the
newer addition with the old as much as possible. The Old House is valued
as an eclectic example of Arts and Crafts architecture in Courtenay
during the city’s first post-war expansion. Constructed in 1938 as a
residence for the Kirk family, the house features locally-produced wood
construction with masonry detailing. The original occupants of the
building were prominent members of the community. Geoff Kirk operated a
highly successful oil business from the dock of his riverfront property,
while Kath Kirk initiated the ‘Mile of Flowers’ campaign in 1969, now a
renowned annual event in Courtenay, which draws over a thousand
volunteers to plant flowers along the mile-long Cliffe Avenue corridor.
