Watson Weekend

Saturday, June 24 & Sunday, June 25 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

A brain-teaser of an event for the entire family!

If you enjoy finding clues and solving puzzles, you’ll enjoy this self-led excursion that will have you racing around the homestead! This inexpensive, fun-filled activity can be done as a family, a group of friends, or on your own! 

Trapper Joe McNamee has hidden his riches, but he's done too good of a job - now he can't find it! He's hoping some intrepid sleuths are willing to help him track it down. Get your first clue and spend some time trying to crack the case by following clues, finding evidence, and cracking codes throughout the site – don’t worry, the staff will be on hand to help with hints and pointers.

Upon your arrival, make your way to the General Store to sign in and collect your first task. 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.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
