Burkeville's History

It was constructed in 1943 by the federal government of Canada to provide 300 plus houses for workers employed at the Aircraft plant.  It was named for Stanley Burke, president of Boeing Aircraft plant.  The streets names have an aeronautical theme, many bearing the names of airplane manufacturers.

 

 

 After the war, many of the homes were sold to returning veterans. 

The tightly knit community is now part of Richmond, BC.
