The Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre was originally built in 1887 and was home to the terminus station of the Canadian Pacific Railway, which stretched from Vancouver to Eastern Canada. Canada's first-ever transcontinental rail journey arrived at the Roundhouse via Engine 374 in May 1887. The building was expanded several times until 1950, after which it became obsolete. It was in danger of demolition but was saved and was a pavilion during the 1986 World's Fair. In 1993, it was decided that the building would house a community center, which it remains to this day.
