“The brick hotel, now familiarly known as The Dick House, was built in 1874 by John Bowden. William Bowden was the property owner at the time. Bowden purchased the lot from Thomas Govenlock. Govenlock had a lumber yard here in 1866. He had purchased the lot from its first owner, Sam Hannah, who bought the property in 1863 and made pumps here for a few years before moving to Pennsylvania.

When Govenlock owned the property there was a frame hotel here. It appears in a stereograph taken from the railway tracks looking north (see the story about Houghton’s Hotel: [http://www.huroneast.com/index.php?sltb=heritage&loc=28]). John Crites was the first Inn Keeper listed in 1870. From 1871-73, John H. McCallum was the inn keeper of McCallum’s Hotel.”

“Sally Phin Parker Hurst, BSN ’59 (June 10, 1936 – April 24, 2009)

Sally Hurst, beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend passed away in April of 2009. A member of the BSN Class of ’59, Sally was a cherished alumni and always remained an active member of her alma mater.

Sally graduated from York House in 1954 and was a member of the Junior League. She worked extensively with families, and thus, enjoyed her years as a Community Health nurse in Vancouver. In mid-life she returned to UBC and obtained her Master of Social Work and thereafter practiced as a family therapist in her own clinic, Sally Hurst Counselling Services. She was a faculty member of Pacific Coast Family Instititute for many years, and taught and worked extensively using a Multigenerational (Family of Origin) approach.

She is survived by her daughters Elizabeth (Paul Gray), Victoria (Patrick Martin), and their father John Hurst; her granddaughters Sarah and Lisa Gray, Catherine and Jessica Martin; her sister Diana Graeber.

Sally lived her life and her death with strength and grace. She touched the lives and enriched the hearts of everyone she met. She will be forever missed by her family, friends, and clients, and will always be in our hearts.
