History and Culture
The Lillooet Museum, one of 14 stop on Lillooet's Golden Mile of History self-guided walking tour, features First Nations artifacts and Gold Rush memorabilia. Lillooet also has an interesting historical relationship with jade, which can be experienced along the jade trail beginning at Jade Park. Locals still find pieces of this semi-precious green stone along the shores of rivers in the area.
