Description From Owner:
  • Houston - In 1910, as a result of a newspaper contest for a suitable name, this settlement was named after John Houston, the first newspaperman in Prince Rupert.
  • Earlier Houston had been the first mayor of Nelson, where he had edited the Tribune. He was a man with a rather dubious reputation.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
