This is a superb attraction, 40 km or so north of Prince George on Highway 97. It's right next to the Fraser, with a beautiful old house hewn out of logs, and a general store in which you can have a very basic lunch of burgers, which somehow taste twice as good as it should in the open air. The homestead is staffed by eager young students doing holiday jobs, and you get to wander by the river, and visit the chickens, sheep, and rabbits, as well as learning of the history of the site, and its role in the portage between the Fraser and Summit Lake. There isn't too much here compared with a larger historical attraction like Barkerville, but the place has a magic of its own, and is more than the sum of its parts. It's also a great example of how citizens can get together to preserve heritage, and it's really worth supporting because of that. The general store has a nice gift shop, with some unique merchandise: I cam away with socks knitted partly from the wool of the sheep I'd been feeding fifteen minutes before. Head ten kilometres or so futher north on 97, and you can do a short hike up Teapot Mountain, making in total a full day's excursion from Prince George. Entry is a $5 suggested donation, and worth every penny.
