Western Charm in the heart of the Nicola Valley!
The historic Baillie Property, operated by the Nicola Valley Heritage Society, consists of a house, barn, store, storage garage and heritage style garden. The importance of the property is the extent to which the buildings have remained so unchanged since the early 1900’s. The society has established a number of annual events including fundraisers that help in the continuing operations and maintenance of the site. The former store on the property is the stop for Merritt’s Tourism Information. Conveniently located in the heart of the community and across from City Hall, at 2250 Voght Street. We hope you will stop in for a visit and learn more about our wonderful history and the many things to see and do in Merritt and the Nicola Valley.
