A Look Back

Victoria Hall was originally called the Meridian Heights Farmers Institute Hall – later nicknamed ‘Dogpatch Hall’. Built in the 1930's, it was the activity centre for Northeast Coquitlam, supporting a variety of clubs, such as a women’s auxiliary, which raised money by raffling home-made quilts. Agricultural halls were important community hubs, where concerts, dances and community events were held. Developing the hall required the community working together to fundraise, plan, find supplies and materials, construct and maintain their building.
