- David Thompson's 'Portage Creek.' One of the earliest routes for explorers entering British Columbia from the east was through Howse Pass and down the Blaeberry to the Columbia River.
- In 1859 James Hector named this river Blaeberry, or Blueberry, because of the abundance of berries in its valley. His 'blaeberries' were probably our huckleberries.
