Welcome to the Granddaddy of them all – Barkerville Historic Town & Park – the final destination on the Cariboo Waggon Road. In 1862, Billy Barker struck gold in this area of the Cariboo and 150 years later, the town of Barkerville is one of Canada’s most significant historic sites. Declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1924 and a BC Heritage Site in 1958, Barkerville continues to be the destination of choice for gold rush history buffs and family fun seekers alike. What was once the biggest boomtown in British Columbia is now a site of living history with a unique streetscape of more than 125 heritage buildings, period displays, satellite museums, restaurants and shops. There is still so much to explore.
