1870's 'Creighton House'
A heritage building built in the 1870's , the Creighton house is home to our museum, gift shop, archives and beautiful Victorian garden. It's a fitting showcase for the many historical artifacts on display. Indoor exhibits include artifacts and photographs showcasing the diverse history of Yale. A beautiful collection of First Nations baskets, Gold Rush, Chinese and Pioneer artifacts, railway exhibits and pieces donated by the former students of All Hallows girls school are just some the artifacts in our collection. A recent donation by Rose Charlie and family of an 1853 'Peace' piano is a wonderful addition to our museum. Our outdoor exhibits include our Living History 'Tent City', showing life during the gold rush of 1858, where visitors to our site can dress in period costume and 'step back in time'. Also on site is our 1863 St. John the Divine church. A National Historic Site monument to Chinese railroad workers is the first monument in Canada to be inscribed in English, French and Chinese.
