Description From Owner:
  • Chehalis River - Chehalis is also found as a place name in the Cassiar and in southern Washington state.
  • There is a great range of meanings offered, the two most probable being 'the place one reaches after ascending the rapids,' and 'where the 'chest' of a canoe grounds on a sandbar' the 'chest' of a dugout being its widest part, directly behind the bow.
  • Linguistic evidence favours the second interpretation, but two old Indian women have quite independently proffered the first.
  • Winslow Creek - After Rainsford H. Winslow, BCLS, killed in action in September 1918.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
