Haig-Brown House
Haig-Brown Heritage House was the home of Roderick and Ann Haig-Brown between 1936 and 1975. One of British Columbia's most distinguished conservationists, Roderick was a prolific author and a magistrate in Campbell River on Vancouver Island.

Roderick Haig-Brown is perhaps best known for his writings on flyfishing, along with 25 books on natural history and conservation, many novels and essays. In addition to all this, Roderick and Ann were devoted to the protection of BC's rivers, particularly those on which wild salmon are dependent for their survival. Defending the mighty Fraser River from Hydroelectric dams was one of their many successful endeavours.

The Haig-Brown property, including almost 20 acres of forest and farmland, was dedicated as a historic site in 1990. Here the story of the Haig-Browns is presented through house tours, and preserved through continuing restoration of the buildings.

Haig-Brown Heritage House operates as a resource, a museum, a summer bed and breakfast, and a base for a fascinating program of seminars, workshops and regional tours. The garden can be rented for weddings, receptions, and other special events.

The Campbell River flows passed the property and the Haig-Brown Kingfisher Creek enhancement stream runs near the house. Together with the woodlands and the trails, this is an outstanding setting for learning about natural history, flyfishing, gardening, and many other interests that were shared by the Haig-Browns.

Haig-Brown Heritage House is just outside the town of Campbell River, on the east coast of Vancouver Island. The Campbell River Museum is responsible for the overall operations of the Haig-Brown House heritage site.
