Today, the extraordinary historic town of Barkerville stands as a living tribute to British Columbia’s golden beginnings.

    Declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1924 and a Provincial Heritage Property in 1958, Barkerville is now the largest authentic heritage attraction in western North America. With our unique streetscape of more than 130 heritage buildings, authentic displays, satellite museums, restaurants, shops and accommodations, Barkerville still has so much to explore. Please join is for an eventful 2017 season filled with education, entertainment, and good old-fashioned service. In fact, there’s so much to see and do this year, why not plan to spend a couple of days with us?
