Went on a tour as part of the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival (fvbef.ca) This event is held the 3rd week-end every November. Had a 1.5hr boat tour of the Harrison River. Saw over 400 Eagles! Toured the nearby Kilby Historic Site and had an amazing lunch. Truly a breathtaking natural spectacle occurs every year in this area of British... More

We stopped into Kilby for a look-about on a recent (late-September) trip to Harrison. It was still rather early in the morning (before 11am), and a Tuesday, so we did not expect anything to be open (as was indicated on their website). We have been into Kilby quite often over recent years, and have visited the various attractions -- general... More

Visitors to the Harrison Mills are MUST stop at the Kilby Historic site & step into the past. This museum is filled with authentic artefacts, some rare, that tell stories of the early days in this rural area. Walk the grounds, see the farm animals, browse the gift shop & have a piece of home made pie in the cafe.... More

A great way to get up and close to what life might have been like if you were living at Harrison Mills at the turn of the century. Wonderful farm animals, friendly fun staff, delicious home-style food at the restaurant and the best souvenirs in Harrison Mills. No fooling....visit during one of their special events to get even more out... More

Have stopped here in several years ago and find this excellent small historic site to get out and explore and learn about how people lived in this area of BC in the past 100 years.

Kilby is a favorite of mine. The restaurant is comfortable and cozy, the food would be considered as 'home cooking' at its finest. The gift shop is small but, filled with handmade crafts, books, and goodies. The museum is filled with wonderful memorabilia, and the staff are fantastic. For a family outing, check Kilby out.

Interesting historic site, off the beaten track. We went for the Easter egg hunt, come early as it does get crowded. Not many animals to see or pat. Enjoyed the historic talk about the Kilby general store. Staff were friendly and easy going. This place is small, don't expect too much.

Went for the bald eagle festival and got a walking tour of the Kilby area. Our tour guide Jo Ann was great and very informative. Learned about the history of Kilby, Eagles and Seagulls. Worthwhile for all to go and see.

We have visited many times with guests from around the world. This trip we shared with two teenagers from Japan! They enjoyed their visit immensely. The farm animals and gift shop were their highlights.

I just returned from a scenic drive from Vancouver to Kelowna, along HWY 7 and a neighbour had recommended that I stop and see the historical farm/mill at Kilby. It was well worth the time! I couldn't get over the friendly animals! The scenery was glorious and I was impressed with the detail to the preservation of the site. It... More
