Sunday Scavenger Day was fun. Took the teens (15-18). Got to play games, look for items, learned about how different life was years ago. Mmm Ice cream and Pie! Genuine smiles and laughter were had by all.

We visited expecting a mini-upper Canada Village, were utterly charmed by the place and its people. The homestead is actually a collection of about two dozen structures, most in their original positions, well restored and furnished with a combination of antiques and implements of the era, which was c1870-1930.

The homestead arose at a natural portage between the Pacific and Arctic watersheds, so is commerce-based, but accurately so. The tough life its inhabitants led comes through clearly from the remains. We found the first Nations fishing camp of particular interest, and very respectful.

There were several picnic tables to enjoy luch at. The general store had lots of original-style candies and condiments. We enjoyed very reasonably priced cold water and pop, as well as ice cream cones at the end of a very thorough and knowledgeable tour given by a university student who works her summers there.

Our only (minor) disappointment was that the homestead home itself was inaccessible as it was being used for a period murder mystery.

We were 4 adults, but younger families would also enjoy Huble Homestead.

What an absolutely fantastic place this is. We visited to get away from the recent smoke in nearby Prince George, and we were not at all disappointed.
Greeted by a very cheery Hayley, who gave us a personal tour of the property, we enjoyed every second of the trip.
The site is very easy to find, though down a very long private road, make sure your vehicle is up to it. A little bumpy in places.

The Homestead is pretty much as it would have been when the Hubles left in the forties. What we all liked was the air of authenticity about the place. It would be very easy to spend all day at this attraction, so take your time and immerse yourself in BC history.
Also, take time to visit the Blacksmith shop and the First Nation fish camp, just a little way down the Fraser River.

its just one of those places you should take time to visit just so you get a feel of what life was like in PG . I believe it is really good if you can time a special event there - if not its still a really good place to stop by

This is a superb attraction, 40 km or so north of Prince George on Highway 97. It's right next to the Fraser, with a beautiful old house hewn out of logs, and a general store in which you can have a very basic lunch of burgers, which somehow taste twice as good as it should in the open air. The homestead is staffed by eager young students doing holiday jobs, and you get to wander by the river, and visit the chickens, sheep, and rabbits, as well as learning of the history of the site, and its role in the portage between the Fraser and Summit Lake. There isn't too much here compared with a larger historical attraction like Barkerville, but the place has a magic of its own, and is more than the sum of its parts. It's also a great example of how citizens can get together to preserve heritage, and it's really worth supporting because of that. The general store has a nice gift shop, with some unique merchandise: I cam away with socks knitted partly from the wool of the sheep I'd been feeding fifteen minutes before. Head ten kilometres or so futher north on 97, and you can do a short hike up Teapot Mountain, making in total a full day's excursion from Prince George. Entry is a $5 suggested donation, and worth every penny.

My niece got married here in August and it was lovely. I enjoyed the history and charm of this old historic site. The staff were wonderful and informative. I would recommend taking a trip out here if you are in Prince George.

I bring my class to Huble on field trips and they love it. Such a fun place to visit! I often bring my family for a day trip and we have a delicious lunch and some candy for the kids. A neat little piece of BC History.

My boyfriend and I brought my mom, dad and brother here for a look around. It was a lot of fun and beautifully set up. Lots to be learned and seen. Great gift shop too!

We were thoroughly impressed with the Huble Homestead Had no idea that so much history existed so close to Prince George. The historical re-enactments were very interesting and "actors" stayed in character throughout the whole interactive discusssions., (One woman was baking in her home kitchen, another was clerking at the General Store). Would recommend a visit. Not as big as Barkerville but still a part of BC history.

This is a great place for familys, kids and weddings. I have been here many times and the walk and tours are great. I love making the butter as it is so fresh and exciting. I wanted to get married here but they are not available on long weekends. Definite place to visit!
