Experience a 1920s Fraser Valley living history site with costumed interpreters. This 5 acre BC Heritage attraction includes our 1906 General Store Museum, Manchester House Hotel & Post Office, friendly farm animals and orchard playground. Site facilities include our home-style restaurant and unique country gift shop. Within walking distance, at the confluence of both the Fraser and Harrison rivers, is Kilby Park; a scenic 34 site campground with sandy beaches, nature trails and boat launch. At Kilby Historic Site you will be pleasantly surprised with the preservation of the only remaining buildings of a once thriving mill town from the turn of the last century. Costumed interpreters encourage you to step back in time as you relive history during your visit. Whether you are visiting the shopkeeper in the general store, or having a conversation with the farmhand, you will experience first-hand just how life was in the 1920s in rural British Columbia.
