Description From Owner:
  • Here the US Army engineers building the Alcan (Alaska) Highway from the east met those coming from the west.
  • Hyland River - After John Hyland, pioneer trader and founder of one of the dynastic families in the Cassiar.
  • Kaska Creek - Kaska, meaning 'old moccasins,' was a term of scorn that Tahltan Indians applied to the neighbouring Kaska Indians in the Dease River area.
  • Lower Post - Lower Post, where Dease River enters the Liard, got its name with reference to an earlier 'upper post' established near McDame Creek, farther up Dease River.
  • Mount Monckton - After Philip Marmaduke Monckton, BCLS (1892-1965). He carried out extensive surveys in northwestern British Columbia, where his hardiness and ability to live off the country won him the name of 'The Wolverine' from the Tahltan Indians.
  • Had he lived he would have inherited another title, Viscount Galway, which passed to his son.
