About Our Auction
Barkerville Historic Town and Park is enlisting your support to help us complete the Barkerville Cottages Project. This project will address the accommodation shortages at Barkerville through the construction of six (6) cottages, each featuring three bedrooms, a kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, a covered porch, a storage room, and a wheelchair accessible main floor.
We invite you, our supporters and fans, to bid on the opportunity to stay in first new cottage, the Lottie Bowron Cottage, in its inaugural year. Through this auction, we're making the best accommodations on our busiest days of the year at Barkerville available to you. All you have to do is submit the highest bid! Happy bidding!
*NEW* Our auction closing has been extended to June 7, 2017.
Lottie Bowron was an important and influential figure in the history of Barkerville. We are honoured to name our first cottage after her. To learn more about her, the cottage projects, and our advanced sponsorship opportunities, please visit our website at http://www.barkerville.ca/fundraising/
About Barkerville Historic Town & Park
The Cariboo region of British Columbia’s central interior has been profoundly shaped by gold, thanks in large part to a simple, working-class English prospector named Billy Barker. In August 1862, Barker helped spearhead a twenty-year, multi-billion dollar industrial revolution that literally helped to build a Province.
The extraordinary historic town of Barkerville, named in Billy’s honour, now stands as a living testament to these golden beginnings. Declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1924, and later a Provincial Heritage Site in 1958, Barkerville is now the largest living-history museum in western North America.
