Huble Diaries

The Huble Diaries, written by Albert Huble, span the period of 1909 to 1919. They were used by Mr. Huble during his days of homesteading at the Giscome Portage. These diaries, now housed at the Northern BC Archives and Special Collections, located at the University of Northern British Columbia, were transcribed by a group of dedicated volunteers and staff.

The Huble Homestead/Giscome Portage Heritage Society has published three different cookbooks, all of which have had contributions from members of the society, as well as the public. The cookbooks feature authentic recipes from the time period the Hubles lived in, but they also feature beloved family favourites, as well as recipes used out at the homestead today.
