Description From Owner:
  • Named after John Fall Allison (1825-97). English by birth, Allison moved to the United States with his family while still a boy.
  • In 1849 he travelled to the California goldfields, where he prospered, but in 1858 he joined the rush to the Fraser River gold area.
  • At Governor Douglas's suggestion, he set out in 1860 to prospect along the Similkameen River and discovered Allison Pass through the Cascade Mountains.
  • In September of that year, Allison and others preempted land, which later became the townsite of Princeton, but they failed to complete their titles.
  • Thereafter Allison began his career as a farmer and rancher. By 1894 he owned 5,000 acres but, dogged by debts, still sought wealth through mining ventures.
  • Mrs. Allison's memoirs have been published by USC Press. ALLISON LAKE, north of Princeton, is also named after J.F. Allison.
  • …from G.P.V. Akrigg and Helen B. Akrigg British Columbia Place Names 3rd Edition 1997
