    I am looking for the possibility of photos of the old Snell farm, and farmhouse particularly, which was located where the LDS church now is.

    My parents rented the farm in 1954, and I remember living in that historic home, and going to catch the school bus from there.

    With thanks,
    Margaret Williams

    • Ms. Williams:
      I was poking around and found your comment here. George Snell was my great grandfather. I was interested in reading that your family moved into the house in 1954. George died in 1953. His daughter Catherine was my paternal grandmother.
      I found one photo of the farm in the BC Archives.
      All the best,
      Gordon Clark
