R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization that proudly preserves Salmon Arm and the surrounding community's history. The facility is managed by the Salmon Arm Museum and Heritage Association. The donations and proceeds from the Heritage Week online auction support the amazing projects and educational programs at the Heritage Village & Museum.
Located on the east side of Salmon Arm at 751 Highway 97 B, it is the Shuswap's largest heritage destination. It welcomes visitors from far and wide who discover how the early settlers and pioneers of the Shuswap lived. Set on 40 acres of the prettiest farmland in the Shuswap, the site comprises 24 buildings that are either replicas or originals and over 30 exhibits, including the original 1910 Haney House.
Due to Covid-19, we encourage our community to gather virtually to celebrate Heritage Week and discovering the history and stories that have shaped our community and root us in our past.
