Ft. George, as Prince George was first known, was constructed by Simon Fraser in 1807 as a North West Company Trading Post, and then as a Hudson’s Bay Trading Post till 1915. The arrival of the railroad in 1914 created a real estate boom. Ft. George was renamed Prince George in the first civic election of 1915. It became a major logging, saw and pulpmill town, centre of the white spruce industry in central B.C. in the 1940s. In 1951 Prince George was connected with Dawson Creek and the Alaska Highway by the Hart Highway.
Vanderhoof: This town was named after Herbert Vanderhoof, a Chicago publicity agent. In 1908 Vanderhoof was engaged by the Canadian government, the Canadian Pacific Railway, the Canadian Northern Railway and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to conduct a major campaign to draw settlers to western Canada. He was very successful and in 1914 the settlement was given his name. In 1926 the Village of Vanderhoof was born. Vanderhoof continued to grow in the 1940’s, with the rise of lumber prices and the arrival of new people. The Kenney Dam was constructed in the 1950’s, boosting the economy and population, and since that time the town has enjoyed a steady growth.
