Description From Owner:
  • McLure - Named after John McLure. Arriving in 1906, he farmed here until his death, aged eighty-four, in 1933.
  • Sullivan Lake - After Michael ('Ten Percent') Sullivan (1838-1908), an Irish entrepreneur who, after participating in the Cariboo gold rush, bought land in this area.
  • 'He did very well ranching, buttermaking, intercepting the North River Indians on their way to the HBC post and buying their furs, selling horses to the railway surveyors, and owning a share in the first threshing machine.
  • With his considerable earnings he became a money lender, and held mortgages on many properties' (Mary Balf, Chase, p. 26). See also Vinsulla.
