This website was created as an educational resource using BC Stops of Interest signs and interactive mapping to explore the important landmarks, events and people that have shaped the history of British Columbia. Over time we will be adding to this virtual library of resources.

We invite you to participate! You can contribute all kinds of resources – archive images, family treasures, links to other heritage websites, information about your local museum, a review of an interesting history book. To share local interest stories, links and photos, visit the specific Stop and look for the 'NEWS' icon.

More BC Stops of Interest

On this website there are approximately 100 official BC Stops of Interest signs – but not all of them are still standing, some have out-of-date content, and some did not fit into the virtual tour concept.

Unofficial Tribute Signs

We have discovered other signs around BC that are not part of the official provincial program. If you have spotted a rogue sign, please feel free to submit a comment and photo.
