Description From Owner:
  • Named, apparently around 1860, after Christina, the mixed-blood daughter of Angus McDonald, the HBC factor at Fort Colvile.
  • She often accompanied her father on his field trips. On one of them, she plunged into the flooded stream running out from the lake and rescued her father's papers. In recognition of her courage, the lake was named after her.
  • Italy Creek - So named because of a nearby Italian community.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
