Description From Owner:
  • Atlin - From the Inland Tlingit Indian word meaning 'big lake.'
  • Gladys Lake - When the future Commissioner Perry of the RNWMP was in charge of this district, he named the lake after his youngest daughter.
  • Hitchcock Creek - After Mary E. Hitchcock of New York, author of Two Women in the Klondike. A wealthy widow, she visited Atlin and grubstaked at least one miner in the area.
  • Inklin River - Apparently derived from the Tlingit Indian word meaning 'big river.'
  • Kochook Creek - To use the quaint phrasing of a toponymical file in Ottawa, 'part of a Tlinkit Indian expression imploring mosquitoes to leave.'
  • Kelsall Lake - After R. Kelsall of the Bc-Yukon boundary survey party, 1908.
  • Lindeman Lake - Named in 1883 after the secretary of the Bremen Geographical Society, the German sponsors of the expedition (headed by Arthur and Aurel Krause) that went into the Tlingit country in 1881-2.
