Big News and Even More Reasons to Invest in Christina Lake. Work has begun on on Christina Living Arts Centre, a Visitors Eco-Interpretive Centre with an Artisans Studio/Gallery Complex, bringing together arts and culture, lake stewardship, and the local economy.


Thanks to Christina Lake Art & Artisans Society, the Lake Stewardship Society, the Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures and the committed effort of their Regional District Director, more than $1 million of funding has been secured to build a LEED certified Green Building, with technologies such as super-insulation, heat recycling, photovoltaics, geothermal heating and cooling and eco-design sensitive to the surroundings in our beautiful Community Park.


Now a further grant of $320,000 will pay for the Living Machine (biological wastewater treatment facilities) to process waste using plants, snails, and fish to convert it into clean fresh water.


Artisans, students, and tourists will come from all over the world to learn from this model of ecodesign, local economy and the role of art in creating a healthy and thriving community for our joy and that of future generations.


Another plus: the Senior's Housing Project, with Green development plans, has just received a significant land grant.

In the early summer months inner tubing down either the Granby or the Kettle is a very popular local pastime. You can pick your ride, depending on how long you want to be on the river, and end up at one of the beaches in town.

History :

The earliest inhabitants of the area date back to more than 2,000 years ago. Today their pictographs can be found in Texas Point Provincial Park on the Eastern shore. Prior to the arrival of Europeans the area, Christina Lake was inhabited by the Sinixt people. The area was a source of furs for the Hudson’s Bay company outpost in Colville, Washington.


The factor of the fort, Angus MacDonald, had a daughter named Christina among his many children. On one of their trips together to the unmapped wilderness, Christina allegedly rescued her father’s papers from the lake outlet. McDonald thus declared the spot Christina Lake.


Dewdney trail was constructed in 1865, and became the main artery for southern BC. Christina Lake became a well-known stopping place for travelers.


Texas Point gets its name from a small herd of Texas Long Horns which roamed wild for years - they had strayed from a herd being driven along the Dewdney Trail.


Settlement began in the 1890s as the Rossland area over flowed with prospectors eager to find untapped sources of gold.


In 1896 the CPR railway reached Christina Lake. This brought easier access for travelers moving east or west.


In 1926 the Santa Rosa road was built. The Blueberry-Paulson, the main artery from Christina Lake to Castlegar and Trail, wasn’t opened until October 5, 1962.
