Explore Kilby Historic Site

We would like to acknowledge that Kilby Historic Site and Campground is situated on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Qwolo’wt people (the Harrison River tribes). The Qwolo’wt people include the Sq’éwlets and Sts’ailes First Nations.

BC’s Museum of Rural Life

Located near the junction of the Harrison and Fraser Rivers, the Kilby Historic Site stands as the only reminder of the once thriving community of Harrison Mills, British Columbia, Canada.

Step back in time and enjoy a leisurely tour of the Kilby Historic Site with its magnificent 1906 General Store Museum. Visitors will view a fascinating gallery of product packaging dating back to the 1920s and 1930s. Don’t miss the intriguing artifacts in the heritage Post Office and Manchester House Hotel; both were an integral part of the Harrison Mills community at the turn of the twentieth century.
