Originally built for the Canadian Pacific Railway
to work their "All Canadian Water and Rail Route" to the Klondike,
the bill allowing this railway link to be built never passed
the Canadian Senate. The Moyie was then shipped
via rail to Nelson and began her service on Kootenay Lake.
She plied the waters of Kootenay Lake
from 1898 to 1957, carrying passengers
and freight to various points along the lakes shore.
She played an integral part of
British Columbia's silver mining history, and today is
the worlds oldest intact passenger sternwheeler.
The Moyie is a National Historic Site of Canada
and sits proudly along Front Street in Kaslo.
Truly and unique part of British Columbia history
and not to be missed on any trip through the Kootenays.
