Huble Homestead Historic Site is a turn of the century heritage attraction located just 40 kilometres north of Prince George, BC.
This living history museum, located alongside the Fraser River, will reopen to the public on May 22, 2021.
Opening Spring 2021
Huble Homestead Historic Site will reopen for our 32nd season on Saturday, May 22. The park is still available for your favourite non-motorized activities, such as hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and photography. Information about the Giscome Portage trail can be found here.
If choosing to explore the grounds of the historic site, we ask that visitors please stay home if they are feeling ill and that they maintain a distance of at least two metres between themselves and anybody they may encounter.

Huble Homestead has suspended our special event schedule for the 2021 season, but we do have a season-long schedule of self-led activities planned! Visitors will also have the option of purchasing tickets to take part in heritage demonstrations during certain enhanced programming weekends.

Learning the Dakelh Language
The Yinka Déné Language Institute has created an extensive online resource for those wanting to learn more about the Dakelh language, which includes an electronic dictionary of Lheidli dialect. We have found it be an invaluable resource, especially as we work on developing our education programs!
