The Huble Homestead is a living historic site that offers tours of heritage buildings such as the Huble House, Salmon Valley Post Office, and the Animal Shelter. Visit replicas of the original General Store, Trapper's Cabin, Barns, Blacksmith Shop and the First Nations Fish Camp; all aspects of the site represent a time in our history that the Huble Homestead/Giscome Portage Heritage Society has proudly preserved on behalf of our community, our heritage, and our history.
Come by, bring a picnic, enjoy a breathtaking walk of the countryside, or walk the historic Giscome Portage. Visit our blacksmith to see demonstrations of the craft of making nails and period implements. Find the perfect gift at our General Store, stock up on Huble Berry Jam, have lunch, say hello to our livestock or just lie down in the grass and enjoy the sunshine.
The history of the Huble Homestead and Giscome Portage can be viewed throughout this site. Here you'll find historic photographs, biographies, rich history and culture as you discover the spirit of J.R. Giscome, Al and Annie Huble and Ed Seebach.
