Description From Owner:
  • Named Moyelle when founded in 1898 during the building of the CPR'S Crowsnest Pass line.
  • The railway had been unable to obtain all the land it wanted at Moyie, two miles away, and so established this rival settlement.
  • The village was subsequently renamed after W.H. Aldridge, general manager of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company.
  • When the railway finally came to terms with the main landowner in Moyie, it moved its station and offices here.
  • …from G.P.V. Akrigg and Helen B. Akrigg British Columbia Place Names 3rd Edition 1997
