Luxury meets British Columbia history at St. Eugene Mission Resort

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

St. Eugene Mission Resort has a focus on the local native history.

The bar and lobby were where the classrooms were, the second floor had living quarters for the priests and nuns. The third floor, with the slanted ceilings and lookout window at the end of the hall, was where the boarding-school students lived. One part luxury hotel, one part history lesson, the St. Eugene Mission Resort is set among the funky towns and ski resorts of southeast British Columbia. The St. Eugene Mission was built in 1910 as the first comprehensive Indian “Industrial and Residential” school built in the Canadian west. For 60 years, it served as a school to 5,000 students from the Okanagan, Shuswap, Blackfoot and Ktunaxa tribes, assimilating them — forcefully at times — into Western society. – From Seattle Times
