This historic photo is of the old Thomas Wood property at the south end of Long (Kalamalka) Lake, purchased by M. (Malcolm) P. (Parker) Williams. He had some Kelowna builders tendering on the work of building a house. For many years the hill on which his house was built was referred to as M. P. Williams’ hill. Williams raised sheep on his property for a time. He was also a church warden of the Parish of Woodsdale in the year 1921 when he was named as an agent of the church in the sale of some land. M. P. Williams died in Kelowna on Dec. 8, 1938, at the age of 62. (Lake Country Museum & Archives)

This historic photo is of Rosemary Wentworth with her grandfather George Gibson at Gibson House.

George Gibson arrived in Canada from his native England eighteen months before he bought this forty-five acre property. The Indian name for the land was ‘Cussasonyx’ or Paradise Point and the natives had used the place for many years as a fishing camp.

Five years after clearing his land and planting an orchard, Gibson met Grace Chapman, who had come from England with Mr. and Mrs. Ward to Okanagan House at Sunnywold (now Carr’s Landing). He needed a better house to welcome a bride!
