We took the kids and Sophie's friend Hunter up to Three Valley Gap today for a little drive (about 40 minutes from where we live). Interesting Ghost Town in that it had some very old buildings from the turn of the century that helped paint a picture of life in the Revelstoke/Shuswap area. However, you can really see how a historic type place benefits from serious government funding, which includes trained archivists and curators. Because this is privately held and is obviously the result of someone loving to collect old buildings and objects it is a bit of a hodge podge. It needs a strong unifying theme for the time period (e.g. a Barkerville or Fort Steele).
Anyways, the kids had fun running around checking out the buildings and it was beautiful and sunny.
