Caleb Pike Heritage Park

Wonderful turn of century buildings are treasured in the Highlands as demonstrated by the historic Caleb Pike Homestead, at 1589 Millstream Road. The homestead housed the family of a farmer in 1883. Mr. Pike initially worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company and eventually established this homestead in the Highlands – constructed of handhewn logs – and a sheep and cattle ranch. His restored log homestead is now a popular heritage site and in use today as a community meeting place. This three acre heritage park has the house, a red school building and a reconstructed dairy amongst the fruit trees and lawns. It is a great place to visit.

You can get to Caleb Pike from Millstream Road. Exit the TransCanada Highway at the Millstream exit and remain on Millstream Road until you reach Caleb Pike Road.  It is at the junction with Caleb Pike Road.  There is a gravel parking area.
