Stationhouse History

Because the railroad ended its services in 1936, the Stationhouse passed into private hands. In 1982 it was donated to the Okanagan Landing & District Community Association by Wes and Kay Whitehead. The heritage building is now a museum for memorabilia and photos.

Ships were fast, reliable and efficient way for mail, people and cargo to travel. As a result, sternwheelers provided the primary transportation from Vernon to Penticton.

The Stationhouse was the primary facility to board the sternwheelers.

Paddlewheel was a bustling centre of commerce and CPR shipbuilding over 100 years ago. Sternwheel steamships Aberdeen, Okanagan, Sicamous, and the tugboat Naramata were constructed here.
