Program Description & Details

Welcome teachers and students! The Kilby Historic Site provides an enjoyable learning experience in an interactive, authentic historic setting–depicting pioneer life in rural British Columbia. Our living history program actively enables student learning with actual artifacts and costumed role players such as a shopkeeper, pioneer wife or farmhand that would have lived in the 1920s, in rural British Columbia. All education programs complement current school curriculum and augment resources used by secondary school classes.

Teachers’ Packages consisting of detailed site information, guidelines and directions are available to teachers prior to your visit for in class lesson and travel preparation assistance.

We require a minimum of 20 students for all school programs and additional experiences listed below.

Our friendly, costumed interpreters will lead a fun and highly interactive program that explores the operation of a 1920s general store and farm in a rural Canadian community. This three-stationed program begins with the unique experience of shopping in the 1920s in our General Store Museum. The farmhand then guides the students around our living history farm, where they learn about rural farm life during BC’s early years. Finally, students are encouraged to use their imagination as they explore the Jr. Merchants Playroom.

Program Description & Details

Beyond just a place for growing food, the farm is the perfect spot to exercise your creative muscles. Whether it’s the stark beauty of winter foliage, the rich greenery that follows spring rain, the beautiful blooms of summer, or the striking colours of fall, nature provides a natural palate to inspire the artist inside all of us. We’ll explore both Loutet Farm and the surrounding forest, gathering material and learning about how we grow such a diverse range of vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Students will learn how some plants have been used for many generations to create works of art, natural dyes, and more. Hands-on opportunities abound in this field trip, with a chance to make their own nature-inspired art throughout the visit.
