We stopped here on a whim because we were in the area and it was raining. Admission was around $10 and it was worth the money. They had an old house filled with historical artifacts of the Gold Rush era. Outside you can explore the...More
The historic site is a great stop in the Fraser Canyon. Admission is a reasonable $10 and a good look about an hour or two although if you walk around town that will take longer.
A lot of the buildings have largely been recreated except...More
A wonderful place to stop and check out if you're interested in a piece of BC history, or history in general. Reasonable prices for admission, and well maintained. Interactive tents for the kids and gold panning to try out (although we forget how!). I advise...More
This place is chock full of local history and the admission price is very reasonable. Especially enjoyed the incredibly detailed stories of the amazing women pioneers who populated this quaint place. Great place to stop on your way to or from Hope.

Just a block off the highway is this old house with nice landscape now called the Yale Historic Site. In less than an hour you will find a strange kind of history from back in the day, regarding Gold mining, what was considered bad enough...More
