a few heritage buildings and train memorabilia.

heritage buildings have been preserved including the McArthur Centre,
Post Office, Sacred Heart Church and Parish House.
Once a booming copper mining town, Grand Forks is located at the confluence
of the Kettle and Granby Rivers. The ore from this area was shipped to
the Granby copper smelter, the second largest in the world. History of
wealthy copper mining production, the Doukhobors and farming in this fertile
valley is evident along the walking tour possible here.
