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. The general store was officially opened on August 14, 1906 by Thomas & Eliza Kilby. Their... More

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.

Kilby gives you a unique view into the pioneering history of BC. Situated in one of the most beautiful corners of BC and close to Vancouver, it's a super day trip where you get to learn about some of BCs remarkable history through the story of the Kilby and Harrison families.

We always enjoy the quaintness of Kilby. The food is homemade and fresh, just like home. There is so much history and crafts to purchase for family and friends.
