First Nations peoples used the "land where the rivers meet" for thousands of years before the arrival of the first Europeans. The arrival of Simon Fraser and the establishment of a tiny outpost in 1807 mark the origin of the City of Prince George. Subsequent development of the railways, the highways, and industry resulted in the growth of the City to make it the "capital" of northern B.C. The signature of the City of Prince George pays tribute to the traditional name for the area "the land where the rivers meet", and depicts the conjoining of two different paths: two great rivers, two railways and two major highways.
