Tomilin Village

District: Pass Creek
Province: British Columbia
Country: Canada
In 1909-1910, Community Doukhobors from Saskatchewan established a village in the Pass Creek (Lugovoye) district of British Columbia. It was known as Tomilin Village or Tomilino Selo (Томилино Село) in Russian after the Tomilin family of Doukhobors who lived there. It had special quarters for Peter "Chistiakov" Verigin to stay when he visited the area. It was a sizeable village with many outbuildings. For this reason, it was also known as London (Лондон) after the metropolis of London, England. By 1961-1963, the CCUB lands were sold and the village was disbanded. It is the site of one of the last remaining communal houses. [District Lot 8640, Kootenay District]
