Skeena Crossing & Railway Bridge

The community bustled with activitiy in river-boat days, partly because of the massing of equipment here needed to bridge the river and partly because of the mining activity in the surrounding mountains. 

Landowners of the time looked forward to the day when their property would be in the centre of a second Chicago. 

The largest hostelry in northern British Columbia, The Copper Tavern, once stood proudly here, and the community published its own newspaper, the Skeena Crossing Calcopyrite.
