Huble Homestead Historic Site is open weekends from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and is located 40km north of Prince George. Travel north on Highway 97, then turn right on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained gravel road. Dogs are allowed on site, but please remember to bring a leash and to pick up after your pet. Admission is by donation; suggested amounts are $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for children and seniors, or $10.00 for a family. More information to plan your visit can be found here.

Guests are asked to comply with public health orders and travel restrictions to ensure the health and safety of our visitors and staff. We ask that you not visit Huble Homestead if you, or anyone in your household, is displaying symptoms of COVID-19, you have been asked to self-isolate for 14 days, or you have travelled outside of Canada within the past 14 days. Visitors to Huble Homestead are required to wear face masks, or coverings, in all indoor spaces. If you require a face mask, please ask a staff member, and one will be provided to you. 

Activities and Demonstrations for 2021

Huble Homestead has a season-long schedule of self-led activities planned, as well as some special event weekends! Check out our calendar for weekends in September or see what we have planned for October

Nature Walk Storytime

Take part in the newly launched Nature Walk Storytime developed by the Prince George Public Library! Families and groups can participate by downloading the Geotourist app on their phones, searching for the Prince George Public Library to see their tour offerings, and selecting the Huble Homestead option. There are 15 stops in the tour - make sure you select the number you want, then hit play. It is highly recommended that you download the tour prior to your arrival on the site, as cell phone coverage is spotty in some areas! Once you have completed a stop, it will change colour from red to blue on the map.
