Mile Houses of the Cariboo Road

Quick info

The original Cariboo Road began at the town of Lillooet, stretching 198 miles north to the fur trading post and sternwheeler port of Alexandria before being extended within three years to the gold rush boomtown of Barkerville. The curve in Lillooet's main street was the zero-mile for the Cariboo Road. Winding its way out of the northern Fraser Canyon and onto the Cariboo Plateau, the road ultimately covered 365 miles (587 kilometres) of central British Columbia in its 1885 configuration.

Throughout the gold fever era, certain roadhouses, because of their favorable locations along the Cariboo Wagon Road, grew to be supply points for the gold seekers and the surrounding district. They were called Mile Houses because of their mileage distance to Lillooet. The legacy of those road houses remains today in the form of ten communities named after these original road houses and their position on the Cariboo Road. 59 Mile House,   70 Mile House,   83 Mile House, 93 Mile House, 100 Mile House, 103 Mile House, 105 Mile House,   108 Mile Ranch, 140 Mile House, and 150 Mile House all still exist as communities today.
