History

Incorporated in 1955, the Village of Lumby is a municipality governed under the provisions of the Local Government Act. The population is represented by a Mayor and four Councillors, all elected for a three year term. The Council serves a population of 1,681 residents within the corporate boundaries of the Village. Lumby is the service centre for a rural population of approximately 4,500 persons living in the North Okanagan Regional District.

Covering the Lumby, Cherryville, and Mabel Lake regions, the Lumby and District Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation of local historical artifacts and the documentation of local history through archives.

The Lumby Museum also includes a large outdoor display building for large agricultural and forestry machinery.
