British Columbia heritage sites and historic attractions include venues like old forts, gold rush towns, First Nation villages, pioneer homesteads, miners and settler camps.
British Columbia heritage sites depicting the story of BC vary on many fronts. The stories are different. The onsite building structures, amenities, services and the number of artifacts on display all vary. Some sites focus on the pioneer with villages, cabins and barns. And other historic attractions tell the story of the First Nation people who were first to settle in British Columbia, Canada.
The bigger British Columbia heritage sites offer a full experience. Some of the extras may include period actors, theatres, restaurants, tours, guides, plays, theatre and historic stores operating as if nothing has changed. Visitors can walk down gravel streets or up on raised boardwalk paths exploring pioneer villages visiting with candy stores, mercantile shops, trapper cabins, blacksmith shops, railway office, churches, schools, post offices, jails, barns and more.
