Description From Owner:
  • Commander R.C. Mayne, RN, who was here in 1859, records in Four Years in British Columbia and Vancouver Island:
  • 'This river takes its English name from the fact of the Indians having made a bridge across its mouth, which was afterwards pulled down by two enterprising citizens, who constructed another one, for crossing which they charged miners twenty-five cents.
  • The Indian bridge is noted on Archibald McDonald's map of 1827.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
