Nass Camp was and
is Private Property,
not an official Village, Town etc.,
but became a Logging Camp Settlement,
occupied and used for many years.
It was located
In the middle of
the camp was a huge Community Center.
It was started in May 1971, by the Nass Valley Centennial Committee,
The Lions Club operated the bar inside.
It was opened in Dec 1971 after 2 years planning.
Prior to this,
dances and parties had to be held in the large dining hall.
Main employer and
owner of the Camp was Columbia Cellulose.
Cellulose became the company name.
It was 115.6 acre
Bill Young, from
Terrace, bought this property at one point,
and operated the Bil-Nor Tillicum Lodge there.
It was all sold in
Nov 30, 2010 to the Nisga'a Nation.
Grass Airport Runway was built north of the
behind the main cookhouse and bunkhouses.
We used to fuel up helicopters in that area.
Local fishing lake and swimming hole, was
just a bit north of the camp turnoff.
Nass Camp Post Office
There was a Post
Office in Nass Camp
Opened in Sept 16, 1976 by Judith "Judi" Appler
When Judith Appler
resigned in 1978
Ida Prosser took over.
First Post Office
was located just outside the Rec. Centre,
In the center of camp.
For some reason
this Official Post Office
isn't in the Canada Archives List.
Maybe because it was on private property.

History page for the camp and area
Priestley near Nass Camp
My guess for the name- after a Mr. Priestley
who drowned in a canoe with a Mr. Parr,
near Aiyansh in the Naas River. on Wed. July 30, 1913
Priestley was one of Major K. C. C. Taylor's survey party
Mr. Parr was a pre-emptor.
Major Kenneth Churchill Craige Taylor
was doing surveys in this area,
when he enlisted in WWI, and died Sept 11, 1916.
Note- Not my sites
I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives,
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it
