Fort Steele Heritage TownOriginally called "Galbraith's Ferry" after John and Robert Galbraith that started a cable ferry across the Kootenay River. The community was later renamed Fort Steele in honour of Sam Steele of the North-West Mounted Police.

Fort Steele grew into a commercial centre, shipping lead, zinc and silver from Kimberley's North Star Mine to smelters in the United States. However, when the railway bypassed the centre in 1898 the town was gradually deserted.

Back to life, visitors to Fort Steele Heritage Town can enjoy first-class musical comedies, scripted street dramas, food at the International, and much more.
