Barkerville Visits China
On November 10th a delegation from Barkerville Historic Town arrived in Guangshou, Guangdong Province, PRC. The delegation – Judy Campbell (CEO), Bill Quackenbush (Curator) and Lily Chow (former Barkerville Heritage Trust Director) – hopes to build links for research and communication with museums and academic institutions, and to promote Barkerville as a tourism destination for Chinese travelers.
Barkerville contains one of the most important collections of early Chinese buildings, artifacts and archival material (including photographs) in North America. The Chee Kung Tong building in Barkerville was recently designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
