More BC Stops

Many of the official BC Stops of Interest signs were originally erected as part of centennial project developed in 1958 – but not all of them are still standing, some have out-of-date content, and some did not fit into our history tour concept. In this section you can read the copy from original signs that are not included on our virtual tour. We invited you to submit your comments. Tell us if know something about these signs, where they are...or whether they are 'Missing In Action'.

It would be nice if the sign could be included in the Vancouver Island tour.

Cassiar Gold Rush

CASSIAR GOLD RUSH

(On Stewart-Cassiar Highway, at McDame Creek Bridge) The prospect of quick riches lured hundreds of placer-miners to the Cassiar, where gold was discovered first at Dease Creek in 1872.  Rich claims were later found at Thibert Creek and here McDame Creek.  From this creek in 1877 a 72 ounce solid gold nugget was recovered – the largest recorded to date in British Columbia.  By 1978 much of the gold had been removed and the fortune seekers...
