Salmon Arm  

Step back in time

The R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum is inviting people to step back in time this weekend.

The museum is celebrating Pioneer Day with a community party July 14.

Located at 751 Highway 97B, people are being invited to learn about what life was like in the Shuswap in 1907.

The day will feature interactive exhibits with some of Salmon Arm's historical characters like the blacksmith in the Newnes Blacksmith Shop, Mrs. McGuire at the General Store and Cyril Thomson at the Lester and Thomson Garage.

See demonstrations and hear stories from the Shuswap Pioneer Collectors Club, the Shuswap Spinners & Weavers, Jack Stead with his gun collection and more.

Join the first schoolmarm, Miss Halpenny in the Broadview School. Slate board and stylus in hand, you will experience what it was like to attend a one-room school 100 years ago.

There will also be old-fashioned races and games like tug a war, walking on stilts, sack races and carnival midway games, face painting and wagon rides.

Visit Chelsea’s Petting Zoo, and come dressed in your favourite vintage garb and enter the “Best Dressed” contest.

Gates open at 8:30 a.m.
