The theme for BC Heritage Week 2015 is Main Street: At The Heart of the Community.

This Heritage Week we are celebrating the history and the revitalization our downtown – First Avenue and area with then and now photos. We would like to give special thanks to Allen McDermid, Ladysmith Archives for research and historic photos and Gerry Beltgens for capturing the downtown as it is today. Want to see more?
