Sionskaya Gora

District: Spencer
Province: British Columbia
Country: Canada
Spencer Hill is a 2,914 foot high hill located five miles west of Grand Forks, British Columbia. It is known locally among non-Doukhobors as Doukhobor Hill after the Doukhobors, who originally settled the area surrounding the hill and had a tremendous impact on its cultural and physical landscape. Among the Doukhobors themselves, it is known as Sionskaya Gora (Сионская Гора) meaning “Mount Sion” or "Sion Hill” in Russian, a reference to “Zion”, the Biblical Promised Land in which God dwells among his chosen people.
