In 2021, Council approved a Heritage Designation Bylaw and designated Sicamous' first heritage property - the Red Barn. This was the first step in formally recognizing the value of local heritage, but the less restrictive form of heritage recognition - a Community Heritage Register - did not exist. In order to fill this gap and to respond to a request from the public, a community led initiative created the Sicamous Community Heritage Registry.
The heritage register was established July 26, 2023 and recognizes 7 properties, including Bruhn House and the Red Barn. The document includes an 'A List' and a 'B List' of sites for future consideration and possible recognition through inclusion in the register.
The Sicamous Community Heritage Registry document was prepared by a Committee of the Sicamous & District Museum & Historical Society. Learn more about how the Register was developed by viewing the Story Map, Presentation, and Staff Report. Listen to the presentation made by Museum Committee Chair Barb Davidson on YouTube June 28, 2023.
