The restored Wheelhouse from the MV Anscomb will be open for viewing this summer for visitors to tour. This restoration was a project of the BDBHA Heritage Committee and is worth a visit.
Open Mondays and Tuesday in July and August from 10:00–2:00
Canada Day and BC Day weekend hours: Friday through Monday 10:00–4:00
Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance Tour August 13/14 10:00–4:00
The Wheelhouse is a heritage gem and was a huge restoration project that took thousands of hours for our volunteers. Funding for the restoration was through Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK, Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, and the Osprey Foundation
Many interesting original items and artifacts have been donated by local residents and captains and crew who sailed the Anscomb. Be sure to stop in and chat with our Heritage Interpreter, Marcel.
