Prince George, B.C. – Find out how the early settlers in north-central B.C. lived as the Huble Homestead Historic Site hosts Homestead Days this BC Day holiday weekend.

The site is located 40 kilometres north of Prince George.  Take Highway 97 north and make a right turn onto Mitchell Road, which will lead you to the homestead.

Besides the old rustic buildings, you’ll encounter knowledgeable staff dressed in period clothinghuble who can describe what pioneer life was like in this part of British Columbia in the early 1900s.

Homestead Days are being held today and Monday from 10 am to 4 pm each day and are all about doing things the old-fashioned way.  You can bid on homemade lunches in the Box Lunch Social, take part in all-age contests, races and games and take in the many heritage demonstrations.

There’s craft-making in the barn, entertainment by local musicians and you might want to take a guided tour.  Whatever you do, don’t pass up paying a visit to the General Store.  It’s filled with lots of great items for sale.
