The story behind the image

On our trip to British Columbia we had not planned to visit museums. But when we were close to the 108 Mile House Heritage Site we did a side-trip to stay for an hour. The site features a set of buildings from late 19th and early 20th century, including this refurbished one-room schoolhouse from 1938. It used to be the 133 Mile Schoolhouse which got moved to the 108 Heritage Site and fully restored. (You can read the full story here.)

I like the passion of the volunteers maintaining this historical site and museum for future generations to come. They have spent a lot of time restoring it and collecting matching artefacts from the region. This makes the site attractive and valuable. It’s like stepping into a time machine that transports you back by a century and provides a consistent experience.

It’s well worth the visit.
