We loved the 108 Heritage site! A cluster of old buildings curved around the edge of the 108 Lake, near a rancher’s field. We were greeted by costumed guides that looked like they stepped out of the late 1800s, when the gold rush brought thousands of gold seekers in quest for a fortune, ranchers, and road houses (hence the name 108 Mile) The heritage site boasts a general store, post house, barn, church, black smith shop, school house, ice house, trappers cabin, collection of sawmill machinery and a HUGE Clydesdale barn… we were so surprised at how much there was to do and see. We could’ve spent hours wandering the Victorian styled ranch house admiring the restored parlour, kitchen, bed rooms and much more. We went for a long walk around the well maintained 108 Lake and Sepa Lake and had a picnic on the sandy beach. We enjoyed chatting with the friendly locals who also were enjoying the nice weather and relaxed, small town atmosphere. Hope to return again soon!
