Explore PoCo's F Words Exhibit

Take an interactive virtual tour of this temporary exhibit from the PoCo Heritage Museum & Archives. The F Words refers to four disastrous events that shaped the early years of Port Coquitlam, Canada. Join Museum Manager Alex Code as he guides you through the museum exhibit and across Port Coquitlam.


This tour explores the years after the founding of Port Coquitlam, Canada in 1913. As the city prepared for a bright future, four F Word events threatened to derail the city’s dreams. The Spanish Flu of 1918, the fire of 1920, the flood of 1921, and the financial crisis of 1923, each of these almost ruined the city’s hopes for a prosperous future. As you navigate between indoor and outdoor scenes, Museum Manager Alex Code will share how these events didn’t break the city, but strengthen it and put it on course to become the thriving community it is today.


Formed in 1988 by Ada Con, Lois Milne, and Councillor Ron Talbot, the Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society set out to preserve Port Coquitlam’s rich heritage. Originally focussing on preserving heritage buildings, the Society now has a permanent space to tell the story of Port Coquitlam, Canada with its guests.
