AAA Editor Notes

Doukhobor Discovery Centre is opposite the airport just off Hwy. 3A to 112 Heritage Way. The site replicates the communal settlement of the Doukhobors, a pacifist group of Russian immigrants who settled near the Columbia River 1908-13. Highlights include an Audio Visual Gallery that shows documentaries, temporary exhibits, traditional music and thousands of artifacts reflecting the settlement. Spinning and weaving demonstrations occur July through September.
