Gordon Bell’s imagination and determination has resulted in the building of the Three Valley Gap Heritage Ghost Town located between Revelstoke and Sicamous. Gordon and his wife Ethel have devoted 45 years to establishing this major heritage attraction which provides employment and economic benefit to their community. Whether it’s saving a turn-of-the-century church from Field or the Craigallachie schoolhouse or collecting and restoring railroad artifacts, Gordon has built a legacy to showcase and preserve BC’s history. Further, Gordon has distinguished himself as one of BC’s most effective advocates for the importance of tourism in the province.
