Classification: Query
First settled in 1906, the tiny community of Gray Creek with a population of 125, is located on the eastern shore of Crawford Bay on Kootenay Lake. In 1913, English pioneers opened a landing and supply centre here to service the steamboats plying the waters of Kootenay Lake. This also became the site of the ferry terminal between 1931 and 1947.
****Today, operating as the Gray Creek Store, this oldest store on Kootenay Lake has an interesting collection of local history books. **** Other historic buildings can be found in the area including the Gray Creek Hall built in 1911 and still in use by the community and an old wooden electricity water wheel at McFarland Creek


wonder if the store might hold some hint of the family
