About Silverhill Hall:
Silverhill Hall was a modest and rustic wooden structure with a simple gable roof. It was located on Silverhill Avenue, surrounded by trees, about eight kilometres west of downtown Mission.
Constructed in 1919 on land donated by Siver Lowe, the Hall was built by and for the Swedish immigrant community that had settled in the Mission area in the early 1900s. It is a physical representation of a tightly-knit community that valued their social interactions, and in particular the desire to continue their familiar traditions and ways of life.
