The Merriwake Interpretative Centre will be located on Main Street at Fitz Avenue in the Village of Slocan.
Before the Build starts – March 2021
After unforeseen delays, the build is expected to begin in the spring of 2024 and be completed by the fall.
The shelter for the Merriwake will not only give a resting place for this “golden-ager” but also tell the parallel story of the internment of Japanese Canadians through an array of interpretative panels. Ian Fraser & Associates will create a series of 8 panels that will take the reader through the decades prior to World War 2 up to the present day.
