The Merriwake Interpretative Centre will be located on Main Street at Fitz Avenue in the Village of Slocan.
Before the Build starts – March 2021
The build is expected to begin in the spring of 2022 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.
