AREA DATA

 

The South Cariboo is situated in the Central Interior of British Columbia.  The District of 100 Mile House is situated on Highway 97, BC’s main arterial north-south route.  It lies northeast of Vancouver and south of Prince George.  The region is covered by hundreds of lakes of various sizes and wetlands, all of which are part of the Fraser Basin drainage system.

100 Mile House sits at an elevation of 579 m (1,900 ft).  At present 100 Mile House is the primary service centre for the South Cariboo and has a population of approximately 2,000.  The service area has a population roughly ten times the size of the town.  It includes the communities of Lac La Hache, Forest Grove, Lone Butte, Bridge Lake, 70 Mile House, Canim Lake and 108 Mile Ranch—the largest residential centre between Kamloops and Williams Lake.  The primary industries of 100 Mile House are forestry and ranching.  Log home building and tourism are also an important part of the community.

100 Mile House is a centre for outdoor activities and is becoming increasingly known for its richness of bird life.  The surrounding area features many lakes for boating and fishing including Exeter Lake, Lac La Hache, Canim Lake, Horse Lake, Green Lake and Bridge Lake.  The Cariboo ski marathon attracts a large and international field of cross-country skiers.

RECREATION

Numerous lakes pepper the region and create an outdoor playground excellent for swimming, fishing and bird watching.

Hundreds of miles of groomed, maintained trails lace the vast landscape, making 100 Mile perfect for horseback riding, ATVing and snowmobiling.  Cross-country skiing is a very popular activity here, and downhill skiing and snowboarding is available less than 50 km (31 mi) from town.  There are two golf courses, one in 100 Mile House and one in 108 Mile Ranch, a 10-minute drive north of town.

HISTORY

100 Mile House was originally known as Bridge Creek House, named after the creek running through the area.  Its origins as a settlement go back to the time when Thomas Miller owned a collection of ramshackle buildings serving the traffic of the gold rush as a resting point for travellers moving between Kamloops and Fort Alexandria, which was 158 km (98 miles) north of 100 Mile House farther along the HBC Brigade Trail.  It acquired its current name during the Cariboo Gold Rush where a roadhouse was constructed in 1862 at the 100 mile mark up the Old Cariboo Road from Lillooet.

In 1930 Lord Martin Cecil left England to come to 100 Mile House and manage the estate owned by his father, the 5th Marquess of Exeter.  The estate’s train stop on the Pacific Great Eastern (now CNR) railway is to the west of town and called Exeter.  The town, which at the time consisted of the roadhouse, a general store, a post office, telegraph office and a power plant, had a population of 12.  The original road house burned down in 1937.

100 Mile House residents often go by the demonym BX’ers, in relation to Barnard’s Express.

100 Mile House is on Secwepemc unceded territory.  The nearest Secwepemc band is the Tsq’escen, for whom a geographic reference point is the Canim Lake Reserve.
