Verigins Tomb was built in 1924 and is the burial place for the Doukhobor leader, Peter V Verigin and his son Peter P Verigin and their wives Evdokia Grigoryevna and Anna Fyodorovna. Just down the way, a memorial garden is the final resting place for the Doukhobor leader.

Verigins Tomb is located on top of a grassy knoll on Sentinal Mountain. From its perch the tomb enjoys views of the Kootenay River and of the Highway #3a Bridge.

The tomb grounds are very well maintained. The grass lawns are trim, the garden flowers enjoy rainbow colors, the slab rock tomb is dominant and there is a gazebo for sightseeing.

A unique feature of Verigins Tomb is a large slab of rock engraved with the eulogy of Peter V Verigin. There are also tours running in the summer months.

To learn more about the Doukhobors there is a museum, not far away, called the Doukhobor Discovery Centre.
