Okanagan Historical Society Reports

Since 1925 the Okanagan Historical Society (OHS) has been chronicling the history of the Okanagan Valley.  Branch members from Armstrong-Enderby, Kelowna, Oliver-Osoyoos, Penticton, Salmon Arm, the Similkameen and Vernon all work hard to capture the written and photographic history of the area.


The OHS has always been active in promoting the history of the Okanagan Valley and each year has published their Annual Report entitled Okanagan History (an index to these reports on the OHS website can be found here).  Believed to be one of the longest, continually published historical periodicals in British Columbia, Okanagan History is a well-researched, illustrated annual volume which contains stories and pictures of families, individuals, businesses, events, tributes, obituaries and memories which define life in the Okanagan Valley.  Articles and stories are contributed by members and non-members and are an integral resource for researcher and pleasure readers all over the world.


This Annual Report is now available in the UBC Library Digital Collection from its first issue in 1926, with a rolling wall embargo period of 5 years.  To order reports from the last 5 years or for more information on the Okanagan Historical Society, please visit www.okanaganhistoricalsociety.org.
