Chilliwack's home history may be yours, low, low price … nothing

It's a fixer top, but you can not beat the price.

He's been at the home for free in the Chilliwack 125 years old, located in Wellington Avenue.

But here are the catch: the new owner will take him to another place from home, which will cost $ 50,000.

If he refuses his rescue, the home of Merlin Bunt's ancestor 120 years ago would be dismantled in order to address multidisciplinary development.

"It's a compact part of my history," said Bunt. "Right now, it's in danger."

When PM tea fell

Louis Paisley built a house in 1894 and sold a great hug of Bunt's Isaac Kipp in 1899.

"It was called Chilliwack's father and my grandmother came up with a young babysitter and took her on the back seat," said Bunt.

"They were strong people, they played the piano and they had eight children, one of my grandmothers."

Bunt told Kipps that the town's Prime Minister Mackenzie King visited them in the 1930s.

"Tea had my grandmother in the yard," said Bunt.

But he admitted, although its attractive price, a significant sum of saving from home was required.

"They are enthusiasts with deep depth heritage to store this place," he said.

& # 39; Assets action plan & # 39;

Chilliwack's historical site inventory is not updated since the 1990s, Cons. Jason Lum – and that would make a lot of protection.

Lum are developing new guidelines to ensure that the city's history is maintained.

"We have come up with a number of applications with houses with significant financial assets," said Lum.

"Instead of dealing with more than one of them, it would be wise to look at an equity action plan."

The president of the Heritage Chilliwack Society, Laura Reid, wants to take part in the action plan, including incentives for developers to store properties like Paisley House.

"I think there's no chance to stop developing, but think a little further," he said.

"There is a wealth of wealth in these new developments, but eliminating them."

Lum and Reide show the constant revitalization of the Chilliwack center as an example for historical buildings and access to new projects.
