Made by Bob_2006
101 1st Avenue, Ioco Townsite, Port Moody, BC. This is one of the landmarks of Ioco and is still in use as a school. The school yard is located at the entry to the Townsite, across from the church. The school itself is a symmetrical design, with banked multi-paned windows that light the classrooms. The plans were prepared in April of 1921, and the building was completed on October 1st of the same year by contractors H.P. Leck; the cost was $16,135. The large gymnasium to the south is housed in a separate building, and odes not affect the integrity of the original structure. Port Moody Heritage Inventory

Made by Bob_2006
NW corner of 3rd Avenue and Ioco Road, Ioco Townsite, Port Moody, BC. A prominent part of the original Ioco Townsite; its location at the edge of the entry to the plant indicates its central importance to the community. It is a large and unusual structure with a broad hip roof and multi-paned windows on the top floor. The land was acquired in 1922 by John P. Grant, who built this large structure, with a residence above. In 1924, the property was purchased by Swan Goranson and R. Larson, and by the following year was owned solely by Goranson.

Tremaine Residence - 1921
Made by Bob_2006
205 2nd Avenue, Ioco Townsite, Port Moody, BC. This Ioco company house has several sophisticated details that indicate it may have been for a manager rather than one of the workers; the square projecting front bay, multi-paned casement windows and roofline show an English Arts & Crafts influence as opposed to the pure Craftsman influence of most of the other houses. The first owner was William A. Tremaine, a purchasing agent, and later a clerk, for the company. Port Moody Heritage Inventory
