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).

We just received this school annual from Sherri Robinson, Archives Volunteer with the Township of Esquimalt. She rescued a box of school annual from a local garage sale when she came across this book. Hi-Note 1962, 100 Mile House High. She thought it should it should be here so people might appreciate it more. We thank you Sherri for sending it to us. It only arrived yesterday and the few people who have seen it already recognize someone. I'm sure there are more...

A huge thank you goes out to Wendy Holfeld for donating this beautiful couch and chair which is now sitting in the Bull Pen. It is from the 1920's and suits this room wonderfully.
