Description From Owner:
  • Graham River - After Lieutenant John R. Graham, MC, BCLS, who made surveys in this area. He was killed in France in World War I.
  • Hudson's Hope - This is the municipality's official spelling of its name even though the post office here, ever since it was opened in 1913, has used the name 'Hudson Hope.'
  • The post was known as early as 1873 as 'Hudson's Hope' or 'The Hope of Hudson.' The origin of the name is unknown.
  • Sir William Butler, who is named, however, after the next white man to go that way, Joseph Howse, who used the same route in 1810 when sent by the HBC to find out what the NWC was doing on the far side of the Rockies.
  • Howse established a post near present-day Kalispell, Montana.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
