Lower Mission, Kelowna, British Columbia
If you have been looking at real estate opportunities in the Kelowna area, you’ve likely come across a number of neighbourhoods ending with the word ‘mission’. In 1860, Father Charles Pandosy arrived in the Kelowna area seeking the perfect spot in the Okanagan at which to establish his new colony. Originally named the ‘Mission of the Immaculate Conception’, the area around his settlement later became known as the ‘Okanagan Mission’.
