The Boundary Museum and Interpretive Centre is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Boundary area history.
MY APOLOGIES AS WE ARE HAVING DIFFICULTIES AND OUR WEBSITE IS UP AND DOWN RIGHT NOW, WE ARE WORKING ON IT!
We’re powered by the SUN thanks to the funding provided by the RDKB’s Federal Gas Tax application in 2014 administered by the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM).
Thank you Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities for your support!
Thank you RDKB – Area C
Thank you to Area C for their support, and the Grant in Aid for $4,000 towards the Office Update!!! We will be updating our equipment along with the work that has currently gone on. Starting in January this year, Volunteers got together and through many workshops have moved and organized many items that were currently located in the Office. The Boundary Museum will be able to complete the update and finish the plan of bring the office up to date. Along with the Meeting room downstairs, the Office will have a better flow and functionality. Because of the wonderful support from Area C, we will be able to put in place the very important and much needed equipment that is necessary to finish this project off.
