Green space, Picnic tables, Trails

Cottonwood House Historic Site located east of Quesnel, on the Gold Rush Trail to Barkerville Historic Town, offers heritage interpretation, accommodation and food to those wanting to explore and experience the Cariboo and its rich history.

Cottonwood House is one of the last remaining roadhouses in British Columbia. It was built in the 1860’s to offer accommodation, meals and provisions to miners and travellers on their journey along the Cariboo ‘Waggon’ Road to Barkerville or Quesnel.

Today, this wheelchair accessible provincial historic site will allow you to experience first hand over 75 years of the Boyd family history and the many features this unique heritage site has to offer.
