Celebrate the beauty and biodiversity of the Harrison River as we honour the majestic bald eagle and the cycle of the salmon over several educational stops in Harrison Mills.
Kilby is the perfect place to plan for lunch on this Festival weekend. Enjoy a short walking tour down the Kilby Park with an interpreter to explain the relationship between the salmon and eagles and tell the story of this once thriving mill town. This FREE event is sponsored by the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival.
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.
