The South Peace Centennial Museum and interpretive Centre has been operating since 1967.
This charming 40 acre agricultural pioneer village features hundreds of restored antique tractors, rare steam engines, stationary engines, horse drawn wagons, carriages and antique automobiles. Walk about the grounds to admire the gardens or browse the historic pioneer buildings full of antiques just the way they were years ago.
Visit the homesteaders’ cabins, trading post, church, school, grist mill, community hall, and general store. Experience a working day in the life of a pioneer strolling through the blacksmith shop, barn, carriage house and railway buildings.
Dig deep into our heritage and discover the skills, knowledge and wits of our forefathers, that have build this country without the power of modern technique, electricity or transportation.
Restoration work in progress includes a Pioneer elevator recently moved to the site.
In 2017 the South Peace Centennial Museum celebrated its 50th anniversary. Now over 50 years of service and still going strong.
The museum features thousands of artifacts on display in our mission to “Preserve the Past ~ For the Future“.
