Description From Owner:
  • Mount Nelson - After Horatio, Viscount Nelson, the victor of Trafalgar.
  • In his narrative for March 1809, David Thompson mentions 'the rude pyramid of Mount Nelson (for so I named it). Also NELSON ISLAND, Jervis Inlet.
  • Palliser River - After Captain John Palliser (1817-87), who, under the direction of the British government, spent the period 1857-9 exploring the country between the forty-ninth parallel and the
  • North Saskatchewan River and between the Red River and the Rockies.
  • He was also charged with seeking for passes through the Rockies, and this extension of his duties took him into British Columbia.
  • Windermere Lake - This was David Thompson's 'Kootenae Lake,' near which he founded Kootenae House in 1807.
  • It was subsequently known as Lower Columbia Lake. It was given its present name in 1883 by G.M. Sproat because of its resemblance to Lake Windermere in the English lake district.
