Fort Steele Heritage Town

Description

Description

Perched on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains since its gold rush beginnings in 1864, the village has gone from boomtown to regional centre to ghost town to one of the most important heritage attractions of its kind in British Columbia.

Enjoy old-time farming demonstrations, ice-cream making, train rides and horse-drawn wagon tours. Try gold panning, watch live theatre performances and observe the museum displays. Or simply enjoy the view in a Kootenay Rockies setting.

Fort Steele is a living history museum. Activities vary by season. The summer season brings history to life with street theatre, museum displays, livestock demonstrations, live theatre shows, steam train rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, and heritage trades demonstrations.
