100 Mile House

In a nutshell...

This small community dates back to the early pioneer days when it was called "Bridge Creek", a rest stop on the fur trade route north. It's name comes from the gold rush days when a stagecoach stop was set up to refresh travellers 100 miles from "Mile 0" at Lilloet. Although the original roadhouse is no longer standing, the area remains an important service centre for the South Cariboo.
