Story

Mackenzie was one of the many planned communities born out of the forestry resource boom in the 1960’s and the Museum has documented every step of this energetic community’s growth. Photographs colourfully illustrate the remarkable job contractors undertook in building roads, homes, mills and even creating Canada’s largest man-made lake, in the wilderness of northern B.C. Perhaps the most important treasures are a series of portraits by Marge McDougall, who created oil paintings of First Nation’s men and women through 1959 to 1965. The museum will also introduce you to the massive 178-ton tree crusher used during the creation of Williston Lake from 1964 to 1966.
