L’histoire humaine de la région de Thompson Okanagan remonte à des milliers d’années, avec les Premières nations de la région. Admirez les vestiges archéologiques vieux de 2 000 ans du parc patrimonial et musée de Secwepemc.

La ruée vers l’or de Cariboo a déclenché une arrivée massive de colons et de voyageurs dans toutes la région, dans les années 1850 et 1860. Villes en plein essor et relais routiers ont semblé surgir du jour au lendemain, afin de servir ceux qui partaient pour les champs aurifères. Découvrez la vie d’un relais routier à l’époque de la ruée vers l’or, au ranch historique Hat Creek, et visitez un ranch à bétail d’époque au ranch historique d’O’Keefe, près de Vernon. Remontez le temps à bord du train patrimonial de Kamloops ou du train à vapeur de la vallée de Kettle à Summerland.

Rendez-vous à l’endroit où les vergers de l’Okanagan ont pris racine, à la mission du Père Pandosy à Kelowna, en Colombie-Britannique et contemplez le Grist Mill à Keremeos, le dernier moulin à farine des pionniers, dont le mécanisme d’origine est toujours intact. Visitez le S.S. Sicamous, le plus grand vestige des bateaux à aubes à coque d’acier au Canada, et embrassez une vaste gamme de bâtiments historiques à travers toute la région dans le village patrimonial et musée R.J. Haney à Salmon Arm.

De nombreux offices de tourisme disposent de brochures sur les circuits touristiques sans guide qui mettent en valeur les sites historiques locaux.
