Description From Owner:
  • Mount Currie - In 1851 John Currie, who had come to Quebec with his Scottish parents, ran away from home and headed for the California goldfields to make his fortune.
  • Unsuccessful as a gold-seeker both there and in the Cariboo, he turned rancher and around 1885 finally settled near Pemberton with his Lillooet Indian wife.
  • In 1898 Currie had disastrous losses when he tried to drive cattle from Pemberton to Howe Sound for selling on the Vancouver market. He died in 1910.
  • Poole Creek - After Thomas Poole, who settled in the district before 1874. Poole and his two children were murdered here in 1885.
  • Gramsons (10 Downing Street) - Many years ago a retired trapper was appointed census taker here.
  • Apparently he took his position very seriously, for some wag chalked on his door '10 Downing Street,' thereby giving a name to the locality.
  • Later an old-timer, Albert Gramson, bought the property hence the present official name of Gramson's. The old name, however, was too good to let go, and the BCR's schedule still lists 'Gramson's (10 Downing Street).'
