Constructed on the Cariboo Wagon Road between 1864 and 1865, Cottonwood House served gold rush travelers headed for Barkerville or making their way out to Quesnel and other destinations North and South. We show you were to stay and how to take a trip back 150 years.
Set in an old growth forrest just outside of Hope, BC is where you’ll find the historical Quintette Tunnels. These 4 tunnels were home to the old rail bed of the Kettle Valley Railway. Fred Brown takes us back 100 years.
Billy Barkers discovery of Gold in Williams Creek in 1862 would started a stampede of thousands of miners into the area and it would change the face of BC for the next 150 years, setting the stage for the economic boom of BC and its eventually confederation with Canada. Barkerville is a historic treasure, it still stands today. Join us as we travel back in time and experience this living time capsule.
