Fountain Flat Trading Post has a new, second building! Soon to become a First Nations art gallery, with some stone carvings and other art currently displayed for sale.

The second building is currently under use as an archaeological research lab.

A series of archaeology outreach talks and workshops began in August 2012. More talks will take place throughout the fall as researchers pass through Lillooet. Check back for up-dates. For more information visit or email

Bring a chair or other seating. Attendance in workshops and talks is by donation. Everyone welcome. Volunteer assistance is also welcome.
