The Kootenay Lake Historical Society is the custodian of the S.S. Moyie, the oldest intact passenger sternwheeler in the world. The Moyie plied Kootenay Lake for 59 years. The Society also operates the Kootenay Lake Archives, which is responsible for a collection of materials and original photographs pertaining to the history of the Kaslo area and Kootenay Lake sternwheelers. Our mandate also includes the promotion of local history in the area.
Join in the historic fun.
We welcome volunteers interested in:
Hosts, Hostesses and Tour Guides

Board and Committees
The Board of Directors is a working board that administers the society and head the various committees. These are the people who guide the Society and act as custodians to the oldest intact passenger sternwheeler in the world. While a Board position tends to be a bit more demanding, the rewards are highly fulfilling. Please contact us if you are interested in a leadership role.
