Museums & Heritage Buildings Maple Ridge Museum

Haney House Museum A fixture of Haney since 1883, this family home was built by Thomas Haney, who purchased 145 acres of land which would eventually become the town of Haney. As the name suggests, his family were the original founders of the Haney neighbourhood, and three generations of his descendants lived in the house until 1979 when the home was donated to the city to become a historic house museum. Billy Miner Alehouse and Café The Billy Miner Alehouse and Café is an authentic watering hole that is steeped in its own heritage, hearkening back to simpler, yet adventurous, frontier times around the turn of the century. Formerly a bank in the historical Port Haney neighbourhood, the two-story, wood-framed structure has all the stylistic cues that were typical of early, main-street buildings. Massive freight trains roar by while the gently flowing Fraser River poses a serene backdrop. For a glimpse into the past, discover a local favourite known for its belly-warming food and refreshing craft beer. Port Haney Heritage Walk For a self-guided tour, Maple Ridge has a Port Haney Heritage walking tour that connects several heritage sites on a scenic route near the Fraser River.

Golfing One of the first European settlers, in what is now known as the City of Maple Ridge, was John McIver, a Scot who homesteaded on acreage that includes today’s Maple Ridge Golf Course. His property had a ridge topped by fine maple trees, so McIver called his farm “Maple Ridge.” The historic Maple Ridge Golf Course, which sits high above the mighty Fraser River, was established in 1926 and was one of the first golf courses built in the Fraser Valley. It is a truly peaceful setting with rolling hills surrounded by majestic maple and cedar trees. competitive sports, do yoga and more.

Port Haney Port Haney was named after Thomas Haney, a brickmaker, who owned much of the property that became the Haney neighbourhood community. His land was subdivided when the CPR rail line was built and the historical downtown, near the railway station and the Port Haney wharf, became the first commercial and residential centre. Learn more about our history at the Maple Ridge Museum, the old Brickyard office, Haney House, St. Andrew’s Church Hall, and the Billy Miner Alehouse (formerly the Bank of Montreal).
