City of Revelstoke History
In 1811, David Thompson mapped the Columbia River for westward expansion. During the Big Bend Gold Rush of the mid-1860s, the river and its streams yielded mineral wealth to some for a short time. Surveyor AS Farwell applied for a provincial land grant and surveyed a townsite where it was obvious the railway would cross the Columbia. Revelstoke was incorporated as a city in 1899.
