The City of Terrace is nestled in the beautiful
Skeena River valley at the geographical, commercial, and administrative
heart of Northwestern BC. The valley is rich with the culture
and traditions of its coastal First Nations founders, the Kitsumkalum
and Kitselas people. The unique power of their artwork and social
inheritance is a significant force in the community today. Visitors
to Terrace are fascinated with the city's colourful past. The
first european settlers arrived in the late 1800's to find a home
rich in natural resources. Having been incorporated in 1927, the
significant stages of it's pioneering past — travel on the
Skeena by sternwheeler boat, the construction of the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, the ascent of the forest industry — are
commemorated by heritage sites around the city and preserved as
artifacts and exhibits at Heritage Park.
Take a tour of Terrace!
