Overview

The Boundary Museum Society was established in 1958, and incorporated in 1980. From its inception until 2009, the Boundary Museum Society operated out of the downtown core of Grand Forks, BC. In 2009, the Boundary Museum moved into the former Fructova School, now called the Fructova Heritage Site. The Fructova Heritage Site was built by the Christian Communities of Universal Brotherhood (CCUB) Doukhobors in 1929 as a facility to teach English and academics to the Doukhobor children of the Boundary area. The school was in use until the late 1940's. The Boundary Museum currently features five larger exhibits - the Doukhobors, a schoolroom, local wildlife & environment, historic store in addition to several smaller exhibits on First Peoples, China town in Grand Forks, forestry, sports, and music. Exhibits change from time to time. You will also see a Doukhobor bread oven and perhaps be able to participate in bread making or other activities in the summer months.

This is a late review but needs to be said.FANTASTIC place to learn about the local history of Grand Forks. Also a great place to get freshly milled flour- brown and white. Best flour i have ever baked and cooked with.

Great historical information of the Grand Forks and Boundary area. Specifically, on the welcoming Doukhabour community. Great volunteers and friendly staff with support from the City of Grand Forks, have put together wonderful displays, housed in a historical Doukhabour building. A must see!
