An old farm on Barnhartvale Road taken on a stormy evening. The main farmhouse is situated on a hill and is separated from the barn by the road. Thank goodness the owner has yet to replace or repaint the barn. They have built a new farmhouse and cut down a beautiful tree right at the bend in the road. I have been up here many times and have taken many photos and this is the first one I have been really happy with. This photo has a texture added to accentuate the storm and for a vintage look.
A short history of Barnhartvale.
Barnhartvale was originally referred to as Campbell Creek or Campbell's Creek until 1909. It is now named after Peter Barnhart, who was the conductor on the first CPR train through Kamloops. He moved to Campbell Creek and opened a post office and in 1909 the name was changed to Barnhart Vale Post. In 1978 the spelling was formally changed to one word, Barnhartvale.
1865 marks the beginning of the written history of the area later named Barnhartvale. That was the year that James Todd and Lewis (Lew) Campbell, the first two pioneers, arrived. The next settlers in the region were John and William McLeod in 1879. A major road in the area is named after the Robert and Henry Pratt families who occupied the bulk of the valley after 1890.
