HISTORY
Hope was established in 1848-49 as a Hudson’s Bay Company post at the west end of their Brigade Trail
from Fort Kamloops, and may have been so named in the hope that this trail would provide an all-British
route between Fort Kamloops and Fort Langley. The Royal Engineers laid out a townsite in 1858 during
the rush for gold on the nearby sandbars of the Fraser River.
In 1860, Edgar Dewdney opened the first pack trail, the Dewdney Trail, to the east. Hope became a
station on the CPR mainline in 1886, but further growth awaited the advent of automobile traffic. Hope
was incorporated as a town in 1929.
