Investing in Greenwood, British Columbia



Region:  Kootenay

Regional District:  Kootenay Boundary

People come to see its historic sites and to take driving tours around the area to glimpse its mining and railroad heritage. Mountain biking is popular along the Trans Canada Trail and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy swimming, canoeing or kayaking, fishing and camping in nearby provincial parks. Without even a stop sign to slow traffic, people driving through on the main thoroughfare, Copper Street/Highway 3, feel compelled to pull over for a look around. The remarkably well preserved commercial buildings and homes that cluster around its compact centre immediately beam people back to a turn-of-the-20th century mining boom town. Historic buildings and heritage sites are the main attraction in Greenwood. Check out the excellent Greenwood Museum and take the Greenwood Heritage Walk to fully appreciate the 1890s/early 1900s homes that speak volumes about the community's boom days as the hub of regional mining activity.
