The South Peace Historical Society operates four distinct programs: the N.A.R. Station Museum, the Walter Wright Pioneer Village, the Peace Country Roots Group, and the SPHS Archives.

The N.A.R. Station Museum is located in a restored 1930 railway station. Four galleries reflect our local history – the pioneer era, the railway era, natural history and the Alaska Highway. School groups often tour the museum during the winter and up to 10,000 tourists stop by the Visitor Centre.

Walter Wright Pioneer Village is part of the Mile Zero Park. The Historical Society owns eleven historic buildings on the site, including three schools, two churches, a blacksmith shop and three pioneer log homes.

The SPHS Archives collects, preserves and catalogues historic photos and documents relating to our area. Holdings include some 6,000 photographs and hundreds of documents. There are frequent requests from Tourism, the City, businesses and the general public for information and historic images.

History – The South Peace Historical Society was formed in 1952 to collect, preserve and display information related to the history of the Peace River area of B.C.
