Welcome to

Mackenzie & District Museum

Explore our valley, from Summit Lake to Sifton Pass,

The Museum sits on the traditional territory of the McLeod Lake Indian Band.  They are part of the proud Tse’khene group of Aboriginal peoples that also includes bands at Kwadacha and Tseh Kay Dene.

In 1964 the prospect of abundant forest resources and available power led BC Forest Products to announce it would spend $60 million building a “forestry complex” in the region.

As part of the development, the town of Mackenzie was established  by Alexander Forest Industries (later acquired by BC Forest Products in 1967) and Cattermole Timber (later partnered  with Jujo Paper in 1970 to create Finlay Forest Industries), to house a workforce for the forest industry.

The Rocky Mountain Trench, also known as “The Valley of a Thousand Peaks” or simply the “Trench”, extends 1,600 kilometers (990 miles) from Flathead Lake, Montana, to the Liard River south of the British Columbia-Yukon border near Watson Lake, Yukon. This valley separates the Rocky Mountains to the east from the Columbia Mountains and the Cassiar Mountains to the west.
The Trench is drained by four major river basins: the Columbia, Fraser, Peace and Liard. Summit Lake, north of Prince George is at the low-elevation continental divide between the Pacific (e.g., Fraser River) and Arctic (e.g., Peace River) drainages, demarking the Northern Rocky Mountain Trench from the Southern Rocky Mountain Trench.
