Description From Owner:
  • Haney - After Thomas Haney (1841-1916), who settled here in 1876. The settlement was originally known as Haney's Landing and later as Port Haney. With the increasing importance of roads, the centre of Haney gravitated away from the river and up to the hi
  • Port Hammond - After two young Englishmen, John Hammond, a farmer, and William Hammond, a civil engineer, who owned the townsite at the time of the building of the CPR.
  • They had hopes of Port Hammond becoming a port of call for deep-sea shipping.
  • Mount Robie Reid - After Robie L. Reid (18661945), prominent Vancouver lawyer and BC historian.
  • Members of the undergraduate History Club at UBC used to be invited to his home to see his splendid collection of British Columbiana.
  • After his death these books joined those of his friend Judge Howay in the Howay-Reid collection in the UBC library. (See also Judge Howay, Mount.)
  • Rolley Lake - After James Rolley, who homesteaded here in 1902.
  • Websters Corners - After James M. Webster, who arrived from Ontario in 1883 and became the first postmaster here. He named the place after himself.
  • Alouette Lake - This was Lillooet Lake until 1917, when the name was changed to avoid confusion with the much larger Lillooet Lake north of Garibaldi Park.
  • Presumably the new name was chosen because it harmonizes with the old. Alouette is the French for 'lark.'
