Cottonwood House Historic Site
Cottonwood House Historic Site is located on the Gold Rush Trail to Barkerville.
It currently still operates and offers heritage interpretation, accommodation and food to those wanting to explore and experience the Cariboo and its rich history.
Cottonwood House is one of the last remaining roadhouses in British Columbia.
It was built in the 1860’s to offer accommodation, meals and provisions to miners and travelers on their journey along the Cariboo ‘Wagon’ Road to Barkerville or Quesnel.
Today, this wheelchair accessible provincial historic site will allow you to experience firsthand over 75 years of the Boyd family history and the many features this unique heritage site has to offer. Here is there website for more information: http://cottonwoodhouse.ca/
