Imagine a house full of everything you, your siblings, your parents, and your grandparents ever owned. What could this building and these objects tell you about your family, your life, or your community? In 1975, John and Inez O’Reilly sold their family home, Point Ellice House, to the Province of British Columbia. Taking only a few personal items, they turned the house over, complete with 108 years of family possessions: Furniture, dishes, luggage, letters, pictures, paintings, musical instruments, clothing, and a lot more. Built-in 1861, Point Ellice House is one of Victoria’s oldest homes – it is both a National and Provincial Historic Site. Today, the site offers self-guided tours of the house, special events, and changing exhibits that connect the house and its occupants to the rich history of Victoria and British Columbia.
