Midway was “Mile Zero” of the Kettle Valley Railway. The original railway station and outbuildings have become a popular railway museum in the town and sits alongside Hwy 3. The Kettle Valley Rail Trail is shared here with the Trans Canadain Trail and there is a nice rest stop at this location.
The Museum itself is staffed by knowledgable volunteers who are happy to share the local history with you. The site includes the museum, the original Station House, an artifacts yard, a caboose, and a section house. The main museum houses interpretive exhibits on the Kettle River Valley’s rich cultural rail, mining, forestry, and agriculture heritage.
There is also a small gift shop where you can purchase regional history books and memorabilia. A recently renovated “Bunkhouse” hostel has been added for cyclists wanting to take a break from their trail camping. It is recommended that you book the Bunkhouse for your group in advance.
