Kimberley, like many towns in British Columbia has a strong mining history; in fact Kimberley is named after the Kimberley mine in Kimberley, South Africa in 1896. The mining claim to fame for Kimberley came from having a nearly 100 year reign for being home to the world’s largest lead-zinc mine (The Sullivan Mine) starting in 1917.
Sports, recreation and tourism have taken over as the main aspects to the City of Kimberley these days, however the history is alive and well at these fun historical activities and destinations to check out with the family in Kimberley this summer!
Learn about Kimberley’s mining history and the history of the famous Sullivan Mine through this interpretive tour taking you on a railway above ground and underground with gorgeous views and opportunity to see wildlife along the way!
The Kimberley Heritage Museum is located in the heart of the city in the downtown pedestrian area; stop by to learn through displays and photo archives!
Formerly known as the Bavarian City of the Rockies, remains of the Bavarian style still remain as it was introduced in the 70’s to boost tourism. While no longer using the Bavarian theme to promote the town, you can still visit the Largest Cuckoo Clock in the world in the downtown pedestrian area and even get a little yodel from Happy Hans if you have a coin to offer the clock.
4. Fort Steele
The nearby heritage town of Fort Steele is definitely something to check out if you have the time. Fort Steele had its hay day in the 1800’s during the Gold Rush. After the rush the towns popularity went quickly and steadily downhill, with a planned Highway running through the town even being abandoned for a more well-traveled route, in the 60’s the provincial government started preserving many buildings and attractions in towns as historical sites and it now has many tourists visiting to see this unique snippet of history.
