Kilby Historic Site is the perfect place for a trip down memory lane. Kilby General Store is all that remains of the original town of Harrison Mills, a once bustling community. The store was the hub of the town, serving as the general supply store, post office, gas station, hotel and meeting place. The people of Chilliwack would take the ferry to Harrison Mills and then the train into Vancouver. With saw mills and the train station close by, the store catered to everyone from locals to vacationers.
Today, Kilby General Store is a world-class 1920s living historical site, complete with costumed interpreters. This 5-acre BC Heritage attraction includes a 1906 General Store Museum, Manchester House Hotel & Post Office, as well as friendly farm animals and an orchard playground. Site facilities include a quaint home-style restaurant, unique country gift shop and a 22-site campground on the scenic Harrison Bay.
