    Chelsey R - Leah, these are amazing! I’ve been to Peace River once, and I fell in love with it. I keep asking Scott to take me back. Hopefully soon he will!

    admin - Show him the pictures and see if he gets home sick. lol It’s so pretty here in the summer. I love it and this winter is nothing to complain about especially with how warm it’s been.

    Carrie Hokanson - My husband and most of his siblings grew up in Peace River and we lived there after we were married. I always thought that the Valley was one of the most amazing that I had ever seen.

    Thank you for the beautiful photos.

    Lawrence Kolybabi - Dear Mr. Wood,
    I lived in Peace River from 1943 to the summer of 1948. Your
    pictures are beautiful and they make me homesick for P.R.
    When I lived there Pat’s Creek ran through the centre of town and
    we lived on the one and only street east of the creek, which backed right up against the hill and the railway track. There was a railway tressel a few hundred feet away at the north end of our street. We had to cross a foot bridge in front of our house to get to main street and do our shopping. My dad was the projectionist at the Valley Theatre. Do you think you can find a photo of the Town of Peace River during the late 1940’s and post it for me to see.
    Google Earth’s photos do not include steet views where our house
    used to be and and the Hill to the east seems to have changed. I no longer see the sand cave above the railway tracks where we used to play.

    Kindest regards,
    Lawrence Kolybabi

    admin - Thank You Lawrence,

    I was born and raised here and I love Peace River. I come from a family of 4 generations my maiden name is George not sure if you new any. Pat Creek still runs through town but it has been covered up and paved over. I don’t have access to old photo’s of the town durning that time. Your best bet would be to call the Museum in Peace River. There is this very cool site on Facebook called Peace River,Ab Remembers here is the link http://www.facebook.com/groups/61230027189/.

    Thank You for your nice comments Leah
