Description From Owner:
  • When Earl Grey, Governor-General of Canada, visited Kootenay Lake in 1906, he was so taken with the area that he purchased some land here for his son, Lord Howick.
  • The land was purchased from a James Johnstone, and the surveyor employed by Earl Grey was named Boswell. Apparently there was a viceregal jest about Boswell having followed Dr. Johnson. In any event Grey named the newly acquired property Boswell Ranch.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
