FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John North Peace Museum recently received funding from community partners to help further preserve the history of Northeast B.C.

According to the North Peace Museum Manager and Curator, Heather Sjoblom, Urban Systems Foundation provided $1,600 and Canadian Tire also donated approximately $1,600 to go towards shelving for the Museum’s expanded archaeological repository.

Sjoblom says the museum has been the Northeast’s archaeological repository for about 30 years and due to a lot of incoming artifacts from Site C, the Museum had to make expansions to its repository.

“We’ve been the archaeological repository for all of Northeastern B.C. for, probably, about 30 years, and due to a lot of incoming stuff from Site C and so on, working with B.C. Hydro, we’ve had to expand our repository.”

In 2018, BC Hydro’s Site C Project donated $18,000 to the North Peace Museum to build the shelving they needed due to the influx of artifacts from Site C.

The repository stores and provides access to archaeological artifacts from across Northeastern B.C.
