Description From Owner:
  • Notch Hill - So named by G.M. Dawson because of the gap in the hills here through which the CPR mainline runs.
  • Sorrento - Mistakenly thinking that the CPR was to be rerouted along the shore of Shuswap Lake, an eastern capitalist, J.R. Kinghorn, laid out a townsite here and named it after Sorrento, where he had spent his honeymoon.
  • Sorrento, Italy, looks out toward the Isle of Capri, and Sorrento, British Columbia, looks out toward Copper Island, which reminded Kinghorn of Capri. The original name of Sorrento was Trapper's Landing.
