You Can Buy This 100-Year-Old Village In BC For $2.3M & It Comes With A Super Cool History

If there's one lesson that we learned from Schitt's Creek, it's that owning an entire town can come in handy. You can buy a whole village in B.C. for $2.3 million, and it comes with an interesting history.

Edelweiss Village has six homes that are actually original Swiss guide homes, and the village is a precious piece of Canadian history.

The Swiss guide homes were built between 1910 and 1912 for "Swiss Guides and their families who were employed in Golden by the [Canadian Pacific Railway] to tour wealthy tourists into the mountain areas such as Rogers Pass, Banff and Lake Louise," said the listing.

Even way back in the day apparently, B.C.'s stunning nature drew in tourists from all around the world.

The village is small but set within a gorgeous forest area.

The quaint homes are super charming, and well preserved. They look like they're straight out of a fairytale.

The property spans just over 50 acres, and you get amazing views from the historic homes. They are all staggered on the hill.

They have incredible nature surrounding them, with a lot of space.

Although they are part of history, the homes have updated plumbing, electricity, and heating.

The main house for the owner was built in 1978 and is equally as beautiful as the other homes.

There is a ton of natural light that comes in through the large windows. If you love a classic-looking home then this is perfect for you. There's even a cute fireplace.
