Oliver & District Heritage Society

The Oliver and District Heritage Society operates both the Museum and Archives facilities in the Town of Oliver.  Incorporated August 6, 1980 as the Oliver Heritage Society, the name was changed in 1998 to the "Oliver and District Heritage Society" to reflect the support from the RDOS as well as the Town. 

The Society is a not-for-profit organization and is governed by a Board of Directors. Our most recent Strategic Plan highlights our focus on improving all aspects of the Society.

Our collection area extends south to Osoyoos, west to Fairview and trading area, east to Camp McKinney and trading area, and north to White Lake and Okanagan Falls. We invite you to take part in your history, the history of your community, and its happenings of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


We are in the process of updating our Bylaws and Constitution to conform with the changes to the BC Societies Act. Changes will be voted on by members at our next Annual General Meeting

We strive to improve our collection and the services we offer to the community. To do that effectively, we have implemented a 3-year strategic plan to guide our activities.

Our collection is what our programs and services are centred around. We are committed to ensuring that all artifacts and archival materials adhere to our collections management policy. 

We strongly encourage donors to review the policy carefully before bringing in materials for donation. 

The Society does not accept "drop-off" donations.
