Huble Homestead Historic Site is a turn of the century heritage attraction just 40 kilometres north of Prince George, BC.
This living history museum, located alongside the Fraser River, is currently closed for the winter.
An Update on COVID-19
In response to the recent local and global events, all of us at Huble Homestead are actively monitoring the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the spread and prevention of COVID-19. The health and safety of our community is a top priority for our organization, and as a result we are taking a number of precautionary measures. Our office is temporarily closed and all of our staff are working remotely for the foreseeable future. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us through our website or our social media channels.
Closed for the Season
The buildings at Huble Homestead Historic Site are currently closed, but the site is still available for all of your non-motorized activities. In this time of social distancing, we want to ensure members of the community are aware that activities such as walking, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and photography are permitted. Please maintain an ideal distance of at least two metres between yourself and any others visitors you may encounter.

Living History In Class Presentations
In light of the current crisis affecting all of us, our Living History program will be undergoing some changes. Our staff are working on materials we hope to be able to provide to our community in an effort to allow you to bring a piece of Prince George history into your homes.
If you have ever wanted to work behind the scenes at a historic site we are always looking for assistance. We hope to have some virtual volunteering opportunities available soon: find out out more here.

Learning the Dakelh Language
