We were at the 110 year anniversary of the Kilby Store - very interesting history - and one of the sons of the original owners lives in our town now (Salmon Arm)

Don't forget to have a slice of... More

There are lots of farm animals to observe. The two pigs were especially adorable and the dairy cows walked right up to us to be petted.... More

This town had a major flood in 1948, so houses and businesses were elevating them on stilts like posts and using boardwalks to connect the community.

This is great spot to relive a little BC history and enjoy great food at reasonable prices. We had the roast beef dinner and it's as good as you are going to get. For desert, what else, pie a la mode. Friendly staff, fabulous food. A winning combination.
