Founded in 1867, O'Keefe Ranch was once one of the largest cattle ranches in British Columbia, spanning over 20,000 acres of prime Okanagan land. From their humble beginnings the O'Keefe family built up a small settlement consisting of a general store with the first post office in the Okanagan, a blacksmith shop, St. Anne's Church built in 1889 and in which weddings are still held, plus many other buildings too numerous to mention.

Today, O'Keefe Ranch is a historic landmark and a "must see" stop when in the area. Here you'll discover some of the oldest remaining structures in the Vernon area, all carefully preserved or restored, each with its own unique and fascinating exhibit. Plus a guided your of the grand Victorian style O'Keefe mansion offers a more personal insight into the lifestyle of the Victorian era.

There's something here for the whole family - relax in the peaceful parklike setting, picnic under the shade of the maple trees, explore our collection of vintage farm machinery, enjoy the huge model railway display and our collection of rare breed farm animals is a delight for all ages.

Other features include the restaurant, gift shop, and many special events throughout the season.

The Okanagan Artists’ League is a group of artists residing in and around the city of Vernon, located in the beautiful Okanagan valley in central British Columbia, Canada. The area is devoted primarily to fruit growing, market gardens, ranching and tourism. Several large lakes, including Kalamalka Lake (which means "lake of many colours" in the Okanagan  First Nation language) and the ninety mile long Okanagan Lake, provide marvelous scenery for tourists and artists alike.

The Artists’ League, which began as the Vernon Art Association, established and ran the Topham-Brown Gallery before it became the Vernon Public Art Gallery. The Artists’ League is one of the oldest art associations in British Columbia and many of its alumni have become well known Canadian artists.
