Rogers Pass Memory Garden Nearing Completion

Revelstoke, British Columbia is around today in large part thanks to Major A.B. Rogers. He found the route through the Selkirk Mountains in 1881, which eventually allowed the railway to reach the Pacific. To honor the history of the Pass, three steel reliefs are being constructed. One commemorates the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the other the construction of the Trans-Canada Highway, and the last one commemorates the tragic avalanche in 1910 that killed 58 people. The memorial will be unveiled officially for the first time on August 15th.
