108 Heritage Site

Enjoy our first Fundraising day of the year, plan for your flower garden with Vesey's Bulb`s and help the 108 Heritage Site, raising funds for the 2017 new projects. Select and order an amazing variety of Bulbs, Plans, Seeds, and Garden Tools. From all the sales the 108 Heritage Site will get 50% what will go towards our 2017 projects. We are happy to have the Invasive Species Council of BC on site with us to answer any questions you may have and proving a children’s game`s  and craft session.

We have set our sights on a huge project this year and it will take some fundraising to make it a reality. Every year we strive to improve the Heritage Site in many different ways.  Our hopes are that when visitors stop and explore the Heritage Site, they leave with a sense of having experienced history from back in the Gold Rush times. This year we are determined to upgrade the electricity on the site and have electricity in the Chapel as well as getting heat in the Museum and Chapel.

All of these upgrades will be done in accordance with Historical Guidelines. These upgrades will ensure safety, allow us to extend our open season time, and make events more achievable.

By becoming a member you can help us with ideas for fundraising and be a part of getting the events going that will help us achieve our goal.

Together we can make the 108 Heritage Site an even better part of history.

Come join the Invasive Species Council of BC for a Saturday session on March 11th that is suitable for the whole family!  Learn how you can be a part of reducing the spread and impact of invasive plant and animal species in the Southern Cariboo region. There will be an information booth and a children’s games and crafts session from 10 AM to 11:15 AM. Beginning at 11:30 AM, we will have an information session where guests can learn about our programs and how to be Plant Wise this spring! At 1:00 PM we will be hosting a plant identification workshop where guests will have the opportunity to learn how to tell invasive plant species apart from other commonly mistaken species.

News

108 Heritage Site

Your visit to the 108 Heritage site will take you back to the good old days of the famous Mile Houses on the Cariboo Wagon Road. The 105 Mile Roadhouse was originally located on D.L. 80 on the old Cariboo Wagon Road, across from the old 105 Mile Post House barn that is still there. The house was moved to íts present location in 1979 when the new highway threatened to destroy it. There are 7 other buildings original to the site including a Log Clydesdale Barn. The largest log barn in Canada (circa 1908).
