Support Fort St John News

It is wonderful to start to do more events, programs, and other initiatives again.

Our first documentary night of the year will take place on Friday April 22 at 7 p.m. at the museum (9323 100th Street) featuring an hour length film on the Alaska Highway. 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the construction of the Alaska Highway.

Kick off this celebration by learning more about this enormous undertaking. Learn about the Alcan’s construction and history through archival film and photos. Ride on a 1939 motorcycle trip on one of the proposed routes, attend the opening ceremonies at Soldier’s Summit in November 1942, and take a trip along the highway during the 50th anniversary in 1992.

Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Masks are recommended and attendance will be capped at the first 50 people to arrive. For more information, call 250-787-0430.

We were excited to host some programs and guided tours for camps over spring break and we have just released our program information to schools. Information on all our programs can be found at fsjmuseum.com.

Lastly, we are very happy to be updating our display case in the hospital lobby again with a brand new exhibit.

Access has been limited during the pandemic and we are thrilled to be teaming up with the Fort St. John Hospital Arts Committee once again. This new display looks at surgery in the North Peace from the 1930s to the 1970s through equipment, photographs, and stories. Look for it in the lobby between reception and Cool Beans Café.
