Description

Follow the route of the railway and the Gold Rush on the Gold Mountain River Bus Tour! Join some of our CCHS Board of Directors on a road trip to Lytton, BC on the Nlaka'pamux territory of the Lytton First Nation to visit the new Lytton Chinese History Museum!

In the museum, “historical displays bring recognition to the early Chinese influence in Lytton and the Fraser and Thompson Canyons, and create a greater awareness of the historic links between the Chinese community, the First Nations community and other local residents.”

Board of Director Member/UBC Professor Henry Yu will also guide you to other unique sites of historical and cultural significance. Lunch will be served at a Chinese restaurant called Jade Springs.

This event is for current CCHSBC members. If you would like to become a member or renew your membership, click here.
