In 1914, Community Doukhobors established a village on the Columbia River in the Brilliant district of British Columbia. Situated near a large communal raspberry plantation, it was named Malinvoye (Малинвое) meaning “raspberry” in Russian. A second set of communal houses was built there in 1932. It was considered a "model" village in layout and construction. Brilliant Community School was built there in 1934. Today, the unincorporated community is known by its translated name Raspberry. It is the site of one of the last remaining communal houses. [District Lot 237, Kootenay District] [49° 20' 03" N - 117°39'27" W]
