way between Kelowna and Vernon. It has a past to be proud of... a present

its very special heritage buildings, history buffs!
A Brief History
Some of Dun-Waters’ most impressive buildings are now in the care of BC Parks and the Friends of Fintry Society. The last remaining packing-house that was serviced by sternwheelers stands on the point. The gracious Manor House and unique octagonal dairy barn are open for guided tours during in summer months. The above was taken directly from the Fintry website at www.fintry.ca
