HISTORICAL WALKING TOUR
Pick up a free historical walking tour
brochure from the Visitor Centre and visit
the community's historical sites. Just a few
of the sites you will encounter:
The first school north of the Peace River
was opened in 1919 in Taylor. What began
as a 16' x 24' one room log schoolhouse is
now Taylor Elementary, a full-service school
with nine classrooms, library, gymnasium
and computer lab with high speed internet.
The Church of the Good Shepard & Peace
Valley Cemetery was built in 1932 in the
memory of the four Hoffstrom daughters
who drowned when their car rolled off the
ferry. The Peace Valley Cemetery next to the
church is still in use today.
