The community of Quick was named after Mr. Quick, a railroad worker who lived in the area. The road through Quick forms a loop to Highway 16. Located 23 km east of Smithers, you can enter the loop from either Quick West Road or Quick East Road. If you enter at Quick East Road, you will immediately notice the original telegraph log home built in the 1890s. It was later used as a one room schoolhouse and is currently occupied by the Women's Institute.
