Walking tour looks at city’s architectural history
Bring water and sunscreen for a presentation and walking tour of Kamloops’s architectural history.
On Thursday, July 19, Kamloops Museum supervisor Elisabeth Duckworth is giving a presentation on more than 100 years of architecture here, followed by a guided walking tour downtown.
It’s a fitting event, given the city is marking its 200th anniversary of the arrival of Europeans at the meeting of the North and South Thompson rivers.
Duckworth will start with a presentation that includes pictures of the city’s first private residences and ends with the modern construction lines in Sun Rivers and Batchelor Heights. Distinctive neighbourhood architectural styles are up for examination.
Then the group will hoof it downtown to look at houses and buildings. Dress for the weather.
The presentation and walk is slated for 6 to 8 p.m., starting from the Kamloops Museum and Archives, 207 Seymour St. Register online www.kamloops.ca/ezreg or call 250 828-3500 and quote course number 190987.
