Want to casually learn about Abbotsford’s history at your own pace? Why not learn about Trethewey House Heritage Site and the history of Mill Lake Park through missions on the Agents of DiscoveryTM app! Agents of Discovery is an educational platform game which allows those of all ages to get out, move and uncover information about the area’s history through a series of challenges, games and questions that can be solved on their own devices. Visitors must be present on the Heritage Site to complete Agents of Discovery missions as the app uses GPS coordinates.

Heritage Abbotsford Society is proud to currently have two missions available to the public:

  • Trethewey House Heritage Site mission (location: Trethewey House, Heritage Gallery and grounds of Trethewey House Heritage Site)
  • Mill Lake Walking Tour mission* (location: throughout Mill Lake Park)

*Please note that completion of the Trethewey House Heritage Site mission is required to obtain the coveted Mill Lake Walking Tour brochure needed to successfully work through the Mill Lake Walking Tour mission. Please show Heritage Site staff in the Heritage Gallery proof of completing the Heritage Site mission to unlock your pamphlet.
