AREA DATA & History
Situated amidst a majestic landscape dominated by the 3000-foot walls of the rugged Rocher de Boule Mountain Range, New Hazelton is a wonderful stop on the Yellowhead Highway for visitors travelling between Prince George and Prince Rupert.
Named after the hazel bushes which paint the river-carved terraces, the towns of Hazelton, New Hazelton and South Hazelton are collectively known as The Hazeltons, and the Totem Pole Capital of the World.
The Hazelton area has nurtured northwest coast native cultures at ‘Ksan for over 7,000 years, with the Gitksan and Wetsuwet’en peoples always living here, where the Skeena River meets the Bulkley River. The Skeena River served as an ancient trade route, navigated by 60-foot cedar canoes travelling from the coast upriver to totem-filled villages with magical names like Temlaham, Gitanmax and Kispiox.
From 1886 to 1913, nearby Hazelton was the upriver terminus for a fleet of sternwheelers which plied the wild rapids of the Skeena, bringing people and supplies to the nearby mines, farms and settlements. In 1914, a transcontinental railway was pushed down the Skeena Valley, bringing thousands of construction workers and homesteaders. New Hazelton and South Hazelton were established as commercial centres on the busy railway.
After 1914, the Hazeltons area stabilized into a rural region of 14 small Native and pioneer communities, all of which have maintained the unique charm of their historic beginnings.
A visit to the Hazeltons today is a journey into the historic Heartland of northwest British Columbia.
