Description From Owner:
  • Gitnadoix River - From the Tsimshian Indian word meaning 'people of the swift water.'
  • Kitsumkalum River - From the Tsimshian Indian word meaning (people of the plateau.'
  • O.K. Range - When the northern spur is partly covered with snow, the letters OK stand out clearly.
  • Terrace - One of the earliest pre-emptors here was George Little, who snowshoed in over the Kitimat Trail in 1905.
  • When the surveys for the GTPR took the railway across Little's land, he did not fight it but offered to give free land for a station.
  • The offer was accepted, and on his adjacent land Little laid out a townsite. The settlement was to have been named Littleton, but the post office department refused to accept the name, there already being a Littleton elsewhere in Canada.
  • The name finally adopted, Terrace, comes from the series of terraces (benches) rising above the Skeena here.
  • Little was a tough-minded entrepreneur who prospered mightily. There was once a saying around Terrace, 'If you don't work for George Little, you don't work.' (See Nadine Asante's excellent History of Terrace, pp. 136-8.)
  • Zymoetz River - Formerly this was Copper River. The meaning of Zymoetz is uncertain, but it may come from a Tsimshian word meaning 'palm of the hand.'
