Confluence of Nahatlatch & Fraser Rivers

Fraser River View Acreage, Boston Bar, BC, Canada

Description

18 acres overlooking the Fraser River 2. 5 hours from Vancouver. Maintained year round access, year round creek adequate for domestic consumption, possible micro-hydro. Extremely private acreage near the confluence of the Nahatlatch and Fraser Rivers.



Private 18 acre Fraser River view property located near the confluence of the Nahatlatch and Fraser Rivers near Boston Bar. The property is situated well away from the main road which offers security and extreme privacy. 

There is an excellent year round creek that runs through the property which would make an ideal fresh water source for domestic use and potentially a source to generate power via independent micro-hydro installation. 

The property was logged approximately 20 years ago and the re-growth of trees on the property has already begun to look like an immature forest. Areas along the creek still host mature trees. 

The property backs onto Crown land with a mature forest, yielding pine mushrooms in the fall and tiny lady slipper orchids in the spring. A good portion of the mountain above is now designated by the Ministry of Forests as an Old Growth Management area. Habitat for deer and the spotted owl. Because of this, future logging in this area will be unlikely. Other local wildlife includes: turkey vultures, mule deer, coyote, black and grizzly bear, pileated woodpecker, rabbits, bobcats and more. Wild Berries such as black caps, raspberries, Saskatoon berries, huckleberries and thimble berries are plentiful.

The road is surfaced from town to within 5 km of the property. The last 5 km is a well maintained gravel road throughout the year. 

From the property you have full strength cellular service and access to the 3G network. 

The adjoining 7.5 acre property offered at $49,000 can also be purchased.

History : Boston Bar was so named because of the numerous Americans washing for gold in the bar in the Fraser River at this point. Since the first American ships off our coast were almost invariably from Boston, the natives took to calling the Americans “Boston men”. Similarly, the natives called the British “King George men”. In 1859 Arthur Bushby noted in his journal that it “is quite strange to see how soon the Indians detect the Boston men & how they dislike them and how much they like King George man”. Provoked by the Americans, the Indians in the Fraser Canyon began to murder isolated parties of whites washing the bars of the Fraser. The trouble culminated in the so-called “Battle of Boston Bar” on August 14, 1858. A correspondent of the San Francisco Bulletin who was present reported the fight “lasted three hours, and resulted in the complete rout of the savages. Seven of the Indians are known to have been killed and a number wounded. One white man only was wounded, and that slightly in the arm. About 150 white men were in the fight.” According to some authorities, “The Battle of Boston Bar” actually took place at Spuzzum. The original Indian village at Boston Bar was named Koia’um, often spelt Quayome, meaning “to pick berries.”
