The Boundary Museum Society was established in 1958, and incorporated in 1980. From its inception until 2009, the Boundary Museum Society operated out of the downtown core of Grand Forks, BC. In 2009, the Boundary Museum moved into the former Fructova School, now called the Fructova Heritage Site. The Fructova Heritage Site was built by the Christian Communities of Universal Brotherhood (CCUB) Doukhobors in 1929 as a facility to teach English and academics to the Doukhobor children of the Boundary area. The school was in use until the late 1940's. The Boundary Museum currently features five larger exhibits - the Doukhobors, a schoolroom, local wildlife & environment, historic store in addition to several smaller exhibits on First Peoples, China town in Grand Forks, forestry, sports, and music. Exhibits change from time to time. You will also see a Doukhobor bread oven and perhaps be able to participate in bread making or other activities in the summer months.

The doukhobors came here in peace, taste the fresh baked bread in the old brick oven, taste the peace

A little but packed museum, the displays give a good idea of what it was like a few decades ago, in this part of the province. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit and took lots of pix to show my family. Highly recommended for all ages and interests

Great historical information of the Grand Forks and Boundary area. Specifically, on the welcoming Doukhabour community. Great volunteers and friendly staff with support from the City of Grand Forks, have put together wonderful displays, housed in a historical Doukhabour building. A must see!

Great little museum! They have a lot of artifacts and pictures of the early mining that took place around Grand Forks, as well as many items used by the early settlers in the area. Well worth a visit.
