Though most of British Columbia’s first inhabitants were First Nations bands rivers (such as Rock Creek) were mostly for summer fishing.
Rock Creek began as a bustling area when the European gold and silver miners passed through the area by saddle train and the Kettle Valley Railways. During the late 1800’s, the Gold Rush of British Columbia developed and the area became known as a supply center for the Boundary Country (which includes Kettle River, West Kettle River, Boundary Creek, Granby River, Christina Lake, Rock Creek and all tributaries draining from the Monashee Mountains to Columbia River Basin).
The economies which followed the boom developed when gold ran low and were created to sustain the few residents that remained. Today, agriculture, forestry, and ranching (including some blue ribbon livestock) still keep the community open to host fresh foods to passer bys and supply produce and meats to parts of British Columbia and the US.
