Balance of Power: Hydroelectric Development in Southeastern British Columbia

Creator(s): Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History

The area's history has been transformed by development - both on the rivers and alongside them. The history of hydroelectric development in the area involved almost everything around us. The dams are the visible infrastructures, the stories of the people are not as visible, but their impact is just as strong. The landscape's transformation over the last 110 years has been dramatic and the choices made have left their impression. Explore the area's history through images, personal stories, maps with films, archival photos and a dynamic map.
