The war years of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 influenced the lives of all Canadians, and still do today. Thousands of fathers, husbands, sons, mothers and daughters served their country on the frontlines. Those who stayed home in White Rock also served in the workforce, in convalescence, in voluntary service organizations – wherever they were needed. We invite you to explore the history of White Rock at war through the museum’s collection and archival material.

This exhibition explores the history of contemporary farms in South Surrey, and the market garden community in White Rock. It also features the stories of traditional food gathering and fishing of the Semiahmoo First Nation, as well as commercial oyster, crab and salmon industry in White Rock and Crescent Beach.
