If the original settlers of Keremeos could see it now, there is no doubt that they would be surprised by the changes in the area surrounding this south central British Columbia village. The Similkameen Valley, located just below it, has seen the effects of floods, fire and time itself. In just one century, the terrain has evolved from arid scrub flats to acres of rich farmland, and fruit trees have replaced the bunchgrass that once grew there. Even the town itself has changed. First established in 1907, the site moved three times before settling in its current location.
