Event description
Come and hear the fascinating history of one of Salmon Arm's Heritage properties!

About this Event

Originally named Dilkusha, it is better known to present day residents of Salmon Arm as The Orchard House Restaurant, Minos Greek Restaurant or The Heritage Chophouse. This elegant building had a rich and vivid history from 1912 until its demolition in 2017.

"The Story of Dilkusha" is all that presently remains to capture the legacy of that property. The Col. Bernard Scott family built this circa 1912 British India Colonial style bungalow in which, during later years, hundreds of people throughout the valley enjoyed the special ambience of dining at the heritage house restaurant, “A Special Place to Dine”, celebrating many special family events and weddings there.

Presenter Maureen Shaffer, Secretary of Dilkusha Heritage Society of BC, is a recently retired International Relief Nurse, turned researcher & local historian.

This presentation is FREE and drop-in at the Salmon Arm Branch, no registration required.
