The history of 100 Mile House is visible in a unique and immediate way because of Ruth Peterson’s enthusiastic passion. She researched, planned and coordinated resources to have the town’s narrative depicted in murals. As part of that work, Ruth ensured the murals’ authenticity and gave a voice to the stories of 100 Mile House. Her efforts add to the town’s visual beauty while expressing its rediscovered past. Her vision has led a project which has generated a respect for those who came before and how they shaped the future of 100 Mile House.
