The Living History Tent City at Yale Historic Site.

Yale Historic Site is part of a new exhibit at the Vancouver Convention Centre promoting heritage sites in B.C.

The display celebrates the province’s rich history and offers visitors intriguing insights into B.C.’s cultural development. It joins other exhibits that feature First Nations history and art.

“The location of this exhibit will allow us to promote our unique heritage to thousands of visitors each year,” said Deb Zervini, Yale Historic Site supervisor.

“The exhibit, along with the Budget 2012 commitment, shows that the province of B.C. recognizes the significance of these beautiful historic sites and a commitment to preserve them for the enjoyment of future generations.”

The exhibit also features QR codes that connect visitors to more information on each of the showcased properties as well as to both the Aboriginal Tourism and Heritage Tourism websites. These sites play a significant role in B.C.’s tourism sector, attracting over 200,000 visitors annually from around the globe.

In addition to Yale Historic Site, the display features Barkerville – B.C.’s Gold Rush town, Fort Steele Heritage Town, the Grist Mill at Keremeos, Historic Hat Creek Ranch, Kilby Historic Site, Point Ellice House, Cottonwood House, Craigflower Manor, Craigflower Schoolhouse, and Emily Carr House.

The exhibit is located in the concourse of the east building of the Vancouver Convention Centre.
