HISTORY

The town of Quesnel was named after Simon Fraser’s Clerk during his expeditions, Jules Maurice Quesnel.  The town grew as a major supply and transportation hub for the gold town of Barkerville and its surrounding gold fields.  Following the region’s gold rush, Quesnel continued to play a major role as a supply and transportation center for the exploration of Northern British Columbia.

From 1921 to 1952 Quesnel was the Northern terminus of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway.  This transportation network and the rich, productive forests surrounding Quesnel led to a boom in the regional lumber industry.  In fact, by 1952, there were 180 sawmills and 5 planer mills all within a 30-mile radius of Quesnel.  This number has declined over the years, with the consolidation of the mills under the ownership of some of the larger regional companies.  The lumber industry has continued to be the primary economic driver for the region.

As time passed, upgrades were made to the town of Quesnel including paved roads, electricity, a bridge spanning the Fraser River, which amalgamated West Quesnel with East Quesnel, a natural gas transmission line and the construction of the GR Baker Hospital.  All these developments permitted the town of Quesnel to gain city status in 1979.
