The Beaver Valley Recreation Committee invites residents of the Beaver Valley to learn about and provide feedback on a proposed project to construct an historical attraction alongside Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway (NFTS) tracks in Railway Heritage Park in the Village of Fruitvale.

The project team aims to share information about the proposed project and get the word out about this exciting development in the Beaver Valley.

To that end, we held a virtual town hall on April 20, 2021 that was well attended. Anyone who didn't make it to that town hall can watch the Zoom video recording by clicking on this link or pasting it into your browser:

About the project:

  • Includes construction of a train station to house important local artifacts, and relocation of the Park Siding School House to the same site near the existing rail line in the centre of the Village.
  • Train Station to resemble the original Great Northern Train Station built in Fruitvale in the early 1900's (with modern conveniences and construction methods)
  • Proposal being developed in cooperation with The Nelson & Ft. Sheppard Railway Co., the Village of Fruitvale, and the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, Electoral Area A.
  • Train Station will function as a Community Centre and Museum - Meeting hall, with light kitchen.

A project summary and draft station design document is available to read/download in the Documents section of this page and we'll add a report on the town hall next.

Thanks for participating,

The Project Team
