Several historical and heritage sites in and around Terrace are worth visiting for their past significance as well as the modern day experience they offer.
Museums and Cemeteries
Heritage Park Museum, a two-minute drive up Kalum Street from downtown Terrace, is the most complete and educational site in town. The museum features eight historical log buildings through which visitors can catch a glimpse of the fascinating time history of the area. The cabins are filled with authentic items such as rusty saws, tobacco tins and snowshoes that date back to the pioneer age.
The Kitsumgallum Cemetery is another calming place to spend time and learn about Terrace's past. This is where the town's founder George Little is buried, along with many other old-timers who played a large part in the city's history. Located on top of a hill, just a couple minutes up the Nisga'a highway towards the Nass Valley from Highway 16 west of town, the burial ground offers great views of the valley and surrounding peaks and rivers.
