McDougall House

This cabin was built in the 1860s by John McDougall, a skilled guide and fur trader. He was born at Fort Garry in 1827. John settled in the valley after he retired from the service of the Hudson's Bay Co.

The cabin is a simple pioneer dovetail cedar log vernacular structure.

It was moved to the Father Pandosy site in 1968 from its original location on Guisachan Ranch.

Immaculate Conception Mission

Founded in 1859 by Father Charles Marie Pandosy, an Oblate Missiomary, to serve the Native Okanagan People, this was the first Roman Catholic Mission in the interior of British Columbia.

Within the Okanagan Valley the mission was the first permanent non-native settlement, site of the first school and place where the first fruit and vine crops were grown.

Restored in 1958. Designated a Provincial Heritage Site in 1983. Operated by the Okanagan Historical Society.
