Cracker Barrels and Jersey Cows (The History of One Family in the Eastern Fraser Valley of B.C.)

Creator(s): Kilby Historic Site

This Community Memories exhibit explores the survival of one family in the pioneering times of rural Canada through diversification. The Kilby family operated the community's general store, hotel and post office, as well as establishing one of the first registered Jersey cow herds in the province of British Columbia. Inside the Kilby General Store, Thomas Kilby and subsequently his son Acton served continuously for 62 years as postmasters. Imagine that!
