The Pemberton & District Museum & Archives Society collects, preserves and displays artifacts connected with the human history of Pemberton & the surrounding area. The Museum has over 2000 artifacts, 2000 photographs and over 20 meters of archival and reference materials that have been collected since 1982.
You will find remnants of the everyday lives of those that lived in the valley generations ago, including the St’at’imc First Nations, the first settlers attracted by the gold on the Fraser, and later, the farming and logging families who called the valley home.
Follow the history of farming in the valley from the first European settlers that came to the valley, many of whom were coming through the area on their way to the gold fields in the north, but recognized the potential of the fertile land and decided to make their homes and livelihoods there. Even before these early settlers, the farming tradition of the valley can be traced from the potatoes harvested by the Lil’wat Nation, through to the valley’s designation as a Seed Potato Control Area where only local potato seeds can be planted, and finally to the diverse agricultural practices of the valley today.
