58 mi from Rupert,
At the mouth of Exchamsiks River.
Named after a high cliff in this area, with a stream emerging out of
Area named during Sternwheeler days, not after the Railroad Tunnel.
A source in
town, Pierre Le Ross, tells me his father told him
it was named by the railroad gangs working here.
both sides of the valley had high mountains
that looked like a wall on each side.
But at this spot, they looked across the river
and noticed a valley, or a hole in the "wall".
there is always other versions where these names came from.
both sound feasible.

Immigrated in 1906
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
