About Kimberley

 

Map of British ColumbiaKimberley Building Supplies has been an important part of the community and economy in Kimberley, British Columbia since the 1950's.

 

Kimberley is located in the heart of the Purcell Mountains in southeastern British Columbia, just a four hour drive from both Calgary, Alberta and Spokane, Washington.  At 3,663 feet above sea level and with the beautiful Kootenay River Valley to the west and the majestic Rocky Mountains to the east, the views enjoyed by residents and visitors alike are always breathtaking.

 

Map of the KootenaysWith a population of 7,147, Kimberley is the second largest city in the East Kootenays after Cranbrook, which is located a 20 minute drive from Kimberley.  The origins of the city go back to the early 1890's when prospectors found chicamon stones, or money rock, on Sullivan Hill.  After that discovery, lead and zinc ore were mined in the underground Sullivan Mine for almost one hundred years.

 

Today, Kimberley's primary supporting industries are tourism, construction, real estate, and mining and its trading area population is approximately 10,000.

 

The Platzl in KimberleyThe relaxed lifestyle enjoyed in the friendly city of Kimberley is hard to equal.  A wide range of recreational opportunities for every season are available within a close proximity, including downhill and nordic skiiing, golfing, biking, hiking, fishing, and so much more!  The city also boasts of a variety of great restaurants, unique shops, talented artisans, and spas and wellness centres.
