History


In the 1800s, fur traders took treacherous journeys across British Columbia using overland and river passage. Fur traders recruited by the Hudson’s Bay Company travelled between Fort Kamloops and Fort Alexandria on the Fur Brigade Trail. Passing the 15km stretch of Green Lake was part of their route.

The construction of the Cariboo Wagon Road in the Gold Rush of the 1860s resulted in new towns and roadhouses springing up throughout the southern Cariboo. Many settlements on the wagon road were marked by their distance from Mile 0 – Lillooet, hence “70 Mile House”.
