Attraction details
Owner description: The Boundary Museum Society was established in 1958, and incorporated in 1980. From its inception until 2009, the Boundary Museum Society operated out of the downtown core of Grand Forks, BC. In 2009, the Boundary Museum moved into the former Fructova School, now called the Fructova Heritage Site. The Fructova Heritage Site was built by the Christian Communities of Universal Brotherhood (CCUB) Doukhobors in 1929 as a facility to teach English and academics to the Doukhobor children of the Boundary area. The school was in use until the late 1940's. The Boundary Museum currently features five larger exhibits - the Doukhobors, a schoolroom, local wildlife & environment, historic store in addition to several smaller exhibits on First Peoples, China town in Grand Forks, forestry, sports, and music. Exhibits change from time to time. You will also see a Doukhobor bread oven and perhaps be able to participate in bread making or other activities in the summer months.

A wonderful place to explore and discover the history of the beautiful country. The day we visited with our Niece and young family, they were making bread in the outdoor brick oven and making butter to go on it.

Dear grannier,

Thank you for stopping by the Boundary Museum & Interpretive Centre. We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your visit. We pride ourselves in the informative and beautiful displays we have created. From spring - fall we have bread baking demos every Thursday for all who are interested. If you don't have time to come watch we also sell the bread fresh out of the oven (first come, first serve). We greatly appreciate your kind words. Please come again soon.

If you have any further comments or questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you.

Sincerely,

The exhibits are well done and unique. Fructova was an old school house, its architecture is unique to the Grand Forks area. A must see for history buffs!

Dear mary1335,

Thank you for stopping by the Boundary Museum & Interpretive Centre. The move from our previous location downtown to the Fructova Heritage site was difficult but we are so happy with our choice. The surrounding hillsides and scenery is gorgeous. Being located in the old Fructova School makes history even more tangible to visitors, as well as making us the perfect spot for events (ie. festivals, weddings, picnics, anniversaries, birthdays, and more). We have many informative exhibits on the history of the Boundary area and are pleased that you enjoyed them. Thank you for your kind words. Please come again soon.

If you have any further comments or questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
