Billy Barker’s legendary gold strike on Williams Creek triggered a multi-billion dollar industrial revolution that literally built a province. Today, the extraordinary historic town of Barkerville stands as a living testament to BC’s golden beginnings.
Barkerville Historic Town & Park is a Province of BC owned Heritage Property & Park, and a Government of Canada National Historic Site, managed by Barkerville Heritage Trust, a not-for-profit charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
The Trust is committed to ensuring that Barkerville is sustained as a premier heritage resource attraction and continues to be recognized across BC, Canada and the rest of the world for its historical significance. Over 90% of our budget is committed to supporting our programs.
Your donation helps us to invest in preserving and presenting the incredible history and stories of people from all over the world who once called Barkerville home. Consider making a monthly contribution to join an incredible family of history stewards.
