Administrative history

The Coquitlam Heritage Society operates the Mackin House Museum.

Custodial history

The collection was accumulated by the Coquitlam Heritage Society (CHS) over the past 30 years. When the City of Coquitlam Archives was founded, the CHS decided it was a more logical repository for its collection of archival material. A transfer was negotiated and the collection was transferred to the City of Coquitlam Archives in July, 2014.

Scope and content

The collection consists of material accumulated by the Coquitlam Heritage Society over the course of its existence. The collection includes the following: records related to Fraser Mills (later the Canadian Western Lumber Company, then Crown Zellerbach) including ledger books, journals, statements, photographs, and various other records; records related to the lumber industry in Coquitlam; photographs of historic Coquitlam; glass plate negatives by W.J. Moore and Richard Broadridge; material related to the administration of the Coquitlam Heritage Society itself; and miscellaneous records related to Coquitlam's history
