Heritage Walking Tour - Nelson

Heritage Walking Tour - Nelson

502 Vernon St, Nelson, BC

When you visit the Nelson and Kootenay Lake area, consider at least one heritage tour. Our community has dedicated hours of volunteer time to restoring heritage buildings, streetcars, the SS Moyie (the oldest sternwheeler in the world), and character homes to their original glory. The result is a collection of communities that offer a distinctive architectural beauty amidst our scenic surroundings.

With over 350 heritage sites in Nelson, we’re steeped in a lovingly restored history. With the Heritage Walking Tour, you’ll stroll past buildings from the Victorian era and the Roaring Twenties and into a time when shopping local was just called “shopping”.

You can also pick up a printed copy of this heritage tour at the Nelson Visitor Centre or Touchstones Museum.
