Relive BC’s Gold Rush at Historic Barkerville

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

When Billy Barker “struck pay” on Williams Creek in 1862, British Columbia’s gold rush town was born.  Today, the Cariboo Gold Rush is in full swing and Barkerville is still teeming with fortune seekers from all over the world.  See the blacksmith and miners at work, ride the stagecoach, take in some live theatre, tour Barkerville’s main street and Chinatown……

Every spring,when the indian paintbrushes and pink fireweed began to bloom along the walls of the Valley of Flags, The Cariboo Sentinel Newspaper published a paper. Compiled from the archives of the original Cariboo Sentinel (published from 1865-75) and from other periodicals, manuscripts and relevant sources, the paper was designed to be a window into that period of our history to which Barkerville and the Cariboo Gold Rush were so important.  As part of your visit to amazing Barkerville you can study the archives of this old time newspaper and it’s photographs!
