Ashcroft, BC

The historical community of Ashcroft has many reminders of the Gold Rush Days. The local museum will take you on a stroll through those exciting days when Ashcroft was a site where freight from the Canadian Pacific Railway was unloaded, then hauled to the nearby Cariboo Wagon Road to go north to the Gold Rush communities. Visitors can get a glimpse at the past at the Ashcroft Museum.

On Highway 97, just a couple of minutes west of Ashcroft you will find Ashcroft Manor. This major stopping place provided flour and other provisions to travellers heading north. At one time the owners also sponsored the Ashcroft Hunt - with coyotes not foxes!
