Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cariboo Road was a project initiated in 1860 by the colonial Governor of British Columbia, James Douglas. It was a feat of engineering stretching from Fort Yale to Barkerville through extremely hazardous canyon territory in the Interior of B.C. Between the 1860s and the 1880s the Cariboo Road existed in three versions as a surveyed and constructed wagon road route. The first Cariboo Wagon Road surveyed in 1861 and built in 1862 followed the original Hudson's Bay Company's Harrison Trail route from Lillooet to Clinton, 70 Mile House, 100 Mile House, Lac La Hache, 150 Mile House to the contract end around Soda Creek and Alexandria at the doorstep of the Cariboo Gold Fields. The second Cariboo Wagon Road operated during the period of the fast stage coaches and freight wagon companies headquartered in Yale: 1865 to 1885show more
