We were not the biggest, but we were the first! The first gold in the Cariboo Gold Rush was discovered in the Horsefly River in 1859. Following that discovery, miners ventured further north to Likely, Quesnel Forks and Barkerville.
The community of Horsefly has been an unincorporated village since then. When the gold miners moved on, many people stayed, farming the fertile land, trapping the extensive wilderness, logging the forest and mining on a smaller scale.
