The City of Cranbrook has passed Heritage bylaws that provide protection of designated heritage properties within the City.
An owner of a property, may apply for Heritage Designation Protection as outlined in the City’s Heritage Bylaw No. 3899, 2017. The designation provides significant legal protection through bylaw, and these protections transfer from homeowner to homeowner. Once protected, the property requires a Heritage Alteration Permit before any changes can take place – and normally these changes, if permitted by Council, are limited to the building interior.
Currently there are twelve properties in Cranbrook currently protected and can be viewed below. Historical photos have been graciously provided by the Cranbrook Museum and Archives. High resolution copies of these photos can be purchased from the Museum by quoting the numbers overprinted on the individual photos. The descriptions are provided by David Humphrey and have been largely taken from the 1976 Cranbrook Heritage Report authored by Garry Anderson.
