Description From Owner:
  • Greenwood - Writing to the Chief Geographer of Canada in 1905, R.A. Brown reported that Greenwood was named after another mining camp, Greenwood, Colorado.
  • This agrees with the account of R.W. Haggen, a local historian and MLA, that Greenwood is one of those places 'named after camps in the American Cordillera.'
  • He added: 'Most of the miners and companies which operated in the Boundary [district] were from the USA.' The townsite for Greenwood was laid out in 1895. Greenwood acquired a post office in 1896 and was incorporated as a city in 1897.
  • Henderson Creek - After Richard Arthur Henderson, BCLS, killed in action on 11 April 1917.
