The past lives and breathes at Fort Steele Heritage Town!
Perched on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains since its gold rush beginnings in 1864, the village has gone from boomtown, to regional centre, to ghost town, to one of the most important heritage attractions of its kind in British Columbia!
Enjoy old-time trade demonstrations, steam-train rides, and Clydesdale horse-drawn wagon tours! Try gold panning, watch live theatre and street performances, and observe the museum displays – Or stay on site in the newly renovated Windsor Hotel and enjoy the gorgeous view in a Kootenay Rockies setting!
There’s no time like the present and no fun like the past. We look forward to having you step back in time with us!
