Description From Owner:
  • Bulkley River - After Colonel Charles S. Bulkley, us Army, chief engineer of the Western Union Extension Company, 1864-6, during construction of the Collins Overland Telegraph.
  • This project to link the Russian and American telegraph systems by way of Alaska was abandoned upon the success of the trans-Atlantic cable in 1866. The line at this time reached only into central British Columbia.
  • Colonel Bulkley has been described as an able and experienced man, 'universally respected and trusted.'
  • BULKLEY HOUSE on Takla Lake is also named after Colonel Bulkley.
  • Hazelton - Soon after 1868 Thomas Hankin settled on the flats bordering the Skeena close to the Indian village of Gitenmaks or Kitanmaksh, meaning 'the place where people fished by torchlight.'
  • When Hankin staked out a townsite here at Skeena Forks, he named it Hazelton because of the large amount of hazelnuts ripening at that time.
  • Hazelton, at the confluence of the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers, was the head of navigation for the sternwheelers that used to come up the Skeena.
  • 'Ksan - This is the Gitksan and Nisgha Indian name for the Skeena River it has no other meaning.
  • Netalzul Mountain - G.M. Dawson described this as 'a great rugged mass of mountain' and reported that its Carrier Indian name meant 'watery mountain,' and indeed many streams do flow down from it.
  • Shegunia River - From the Nisgha Indian word meaning 'water from the place of spring salmon.'
