The North Peace Historical Society will hold a special evening Friday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Bedaux Expedition.

The expedition by Charles Bedaux came through the North Peace trying to find a route to Alaska.

Local historian Larry Evans says his route was supposedly used to map out the Alaska Highway.
