Downtown Heritage Walking Tours happening all summer


The Oliver & District Heritage Society is once again offering its popular Downtown Heritage Walking Tours this summer from June 14th to August 30th.

The guided tours, which will run every Friday at 10:30 am in June and Fridays and Saturdays at 10:30 am for the rest of the summer, will cover the history of Oliver’s historic buildings and landmarks, from the CPR Station to portions of the Ditch. Tours will be led by the ODHS’ knowledgeable summer student guides and will take approximately 45 minutes. All tours start from the Oliver Visitor Centre and finish at the Museum at 474 School Avenue. Participants are asked to bring appropriate footwear and dress for the weather, as tours run rain or shine. Each tour covers approximately 1.5 kilometres.

Sunscreen and water are encouraged. Here’s your chance to learn about Oliver’s historic downtown and become a local architecture buff. Learn about places like the Oliver Theatre, Dr. Ball’s Office, the BC Police Building, and more! Come down to the Oliver Museum for more information, or you can visit our website at

We hope to see you there!


  1. Will it be possible for me to take the tour on my electric cart ? I would love to take this tour and listen to the history. ? I am unable to walk but would be happy to ride at the back of the pack so as to not be in anyone’s way.

  2. I enquired of the society and was welcomed to join the walk although I will be riding my electric cart. Being disabled is not fun but the society welcomes all to partake of the walk and I look forward to being able to learn a little more about our community and also to be able to mingle and parkake of these type of events. To all other disabled I encourage you to come along, the society makes us more than welcome and it would be a great way for us to support the society and community.
