#FlashbackFriday In 1858 gold was discovered on a gravel bar just 2 miles south of Yale on the Fraser River. This place was soon known as Hill's Bar named after the prospector who found gold there. The discovery of gold caused a massive influx of people to pour into the region from all over the world, the majority of which came from the California Gold Rush of 1849. Yale suddenly became a very large city with many stores, restaurants and hotels along the river. Houses and churches were built on the hill overlooking the river. Yale once was known as the biggest city west of Chicago and north of San Francisco. Via HistoricYale on Instagram #TravelTheCanyon

#ThrowbackThursday:

For more than 20 years the Fraser Canyon walls echoed to the crack of the whip and the thunder of hooves of the stage line begun by Francis Barnard.
Francis Barnard was an extraordinary man, perhaps the hardest-working entrepreneur of his time. He began Barnard's Express by walking the 380 miles from Yale to Barkerville completely on foot, with a heavy pack full of letters and newspapers, then turned around with another load of letters and gold from the miners. His round trip was an arduous trek of 760 miles, or more than 1200 kilometres of rough mountainous trails. He made this trip several times a year and eventually he saved enough money to buy a horse, and then finally a stagecoach with six horses. Via HistoricYale on Instagram #TravelTheCanyon
