British Columbia Tourism Region : Thompson Okanagan
- After David McBride, who settled here in the 1880s.
- Reportedly, when the Great Northern Railway ran a line into the district, McBride said that he would grant land for a townsite but only if the settlement were given his name. It seems that the railroad met McBride halfway.
