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

This was a very unexpected stop but we were really pleased that we made the effort to go back and see this site. It is really well done with a house and store set up that you could see no where else. Truly amazing and fun to see what life was like in earlier time.

Driving back from Harrison on Highway 7 (the slow route) we saw the sign for Kilby. Had never been there so made the turnoff and was so happy we did. So awesome so see British Columbia's History....the General Store....the 1900 "hotel"... the post office and all of the live farm displays. What a great place to bring the kids to... More
