The North Shuswap Historical Society was formed in 1985 with the goal of gathering and preserving the history of the North Shuswap and its surrounding areas. The Society’s archives, located in Scotch Creek, have a collection of photographs, diaries, letters, documents and newspaper articles. The Society currently holds monthly meetings at Celista to conduct society business, work on the Shuswap Chronicles, plan events and to discuss the history of the communities and settlements surrounding Shuswap Lake.
To date the NSHS has published ten volumes of the Shuswap Chronicles documenting the human history and settlement in and around Shuswap Lake. The Society has also developed four Self-Guided Driving Tours of historical places in the North Shuswap.
