Taylor cemetery tour tonight

The Fort St. John North Peace Museum hosts its first-ever guided tour of the Peace Valley Cemetery in Taylor tonight.

The museum will share stories of the life and times of residents who lived on and worked the land around the Peace River, from surveyors, to Hudson's Hope factors, to logging and ranching pioneers.

"There is also a lot of history associated with the Taylor cemetery and the church beside it, the Church of the Good Shepherd," museum manager and curator Caty Virostek said.

"We will touch on the history of the church and talk about around a dozen of the pioneers buried in the cemetery."

Tonight's weather calls for the clouds and rain to clear, with gusting winds expected to die down. 

The tour starts at 7 p.m. There is an entrance fee, which can be paid at the gate.

Call the museum at 250-787-0430 for more information.
