Costumed guides tell a fascinating tale at this National Heritage Site. Exiled from their homeland, Russian Doukhobors settled in the area in 1899, digging into the river ravine for shelter. These tenacious pioneers lived in the Dugout Houses until 1904 when log houses were built. Visitors are asked to respect this delicate archaeological site. Located on private property. Strenuous walking involved. 2015 season opening day theme - There is a Difference: Doukhobors were Rational, Sons of Freedom, Fanatical.
