Golden Miles of History

Introduction

As one of the oldest towns in the province, Lillooet's history is the history of British Columbia.

Once the largest settlement west of Chicago and north of San Francisco as well as the terminus of the first road built into the interior of B.C., Lillooet's Golden Miles of History Tour is named for the wealth of gold dust mined from the downtown section of Main Street that also became the supply hub for the Cariboo Goldfields.
