Watson Weekend

Saturday, June 22 & Sunday, June 23 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

Bust out the magnifying glasses for this self-guided adventure that’ll make you put on your thinking caps!

Find out if the thrill of the hunt will bring out the sleuth in you as you investigate the grounds and buildings of the historic site for hidden clues. Explore at your leisure as you solve the riddles and puzzles scattered across the homestead, decoding messages, and unlocking boxes as you go! Gather your team, sharpen your wits, and get ready to crack the case!

Homesteader Emmett 'Shorty' Haynes has stashed away the money he's made from river freighting, but he's done too good of a job - now he can't find it! Gather your team, sharpen your wits, and get ready to crack the case!


Make your way to General Store to get your first clue and work at your own pace to find Shorty's loot – don’t worry, the staff will be on hand to help with hints and pointers! The event kicks off at 11:00 AM, and visitors are welcome to start at any point throughout the day until 3:30 PM.

Huble Homestead Historic Site is a 30 minute drive north of Prince George, BC. Leave the city behind and make your way up Highway 97 for 40 kilometres, before turning off on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained dirt road.

Huble Homestead is dog friendly and open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm for guided tours and shopping in the General Store. Enjoy a picnic or purchase lunch from the BBQ as you relax in the fresh air. Admission is by donation, with a recommended amount of $10.00 per family.
