Agassiz-Harrison Museum releases Heritage Self-Guided Walking Tour series

Walking tour points out historically significant sites throughout Agassiz, Harrison, Harrison Mills

It’s a labour of love two years in the making, and it’s finally come to fruition.

The Agassiz-Harrison Museum recently released the Heritage Self-Guided Walking Tour series, a set of four informational maps full of places of historical significance and interest in downtown Agassiz, the Old Agassiz Cemetery, Harrison Hot Springs and Harrison Mills.

Chilliwack-based artist Jenia Siemens created each map, decorated with landmarks and dotted with locations of at least a dozen points of interest per brochure.

For example, the Harrison Mills brochure highlights the Harrison River Highway Bridge, Kilby Historic Site and the former site of Carnavon, which was Harrison Mills’ original name. Though Carnavon was the official name at the time, locals called it Harrisonmouth, Harrison Forks or Scowlitz.

Pick up your brochures at the Agassiz-Harrison Museum at 7011 Pioneer Avenue. For more information, call 604-796-3545.
