Gerrard cabin project gets a boost

Columbia Power Corporation assists with the restoration of a historic cabin.

Columbia Power has provided $2,500 to the Friends of the Lardeau in support of their Gerrard historic cabin restoration project.

The only remaining original structure from the Gerrard townsite, Friends of the Lardeau identified the cabin as a key heritage asset for the Lardeau Valley that should be maintained for the use and appreciation of residents and visitors.

The restoration project will include replacement of the existing structure, installation of three plexi-glass windows, replacement of the cabin floor and the entrance deck, railing and stairs.

The Gerrard historic cabin project is a continuation of the work of the Friends of the Lardeau at Gerrard including a new Lardeau River viewing platform and revitalized campground.
