A New C.P.R. Steamer

The C.P.R. Co. have prepared plans for and will build during the coming winter one of the finest steamers in British Columbia to run on the route between the Nelson and Kootenay Landing in connection with the Crow’s Nest Pass railway. It is stated that the steamer will be superior even to the Rossland which plies on the Arrow Lakes, between Arrowhead and Rossland.

Audio Tour/Downtown Walking Tour: The Rossland Museum is developing an audio tour to complement the Downtown Walking Tour organized by the City of Rossland Heritage Commission.

Each building on Rossland’s Heritage Register has a historic plaque with information about its history. This new audio tour will add an audio clip from a person with a personal connection to each heritage building or site to help bring the history of each spot to life.
