Mackenzie Museum


Mackenzie was one of the many planned communities born out of the forestry resource boom in the 1960's. The Mackenzie Museum has documented every step of this energetic community's growth. Photographs illustrate the remarkable job contractors undertook in building roads, homes, mills and even creating the Williston Reservoir (B.C.'s largest) in the wilderness of northern B.C. The museum's collection includes a series of portraits by Marge McDougall, who created oil paintings of First Nation's men and women from 1959 to 1965. The museum will also introduce you to the massive 178-ton tree crusher used during the creation of the Williston Reservoir from 1964 to 1966.
