Whiskey Fill Road

Feature type: road
Province: British Columbia

“Whiskey Curve is west of Valemount and is called that because a car of whiskey was wrecked on this curve,” according to a local history book. “Most of the whiskey disappeared before it could be cleaned up.”

“The train wreck in Whiskey Fill occurred, I believe, in 1924,” according to one correspondent. “It is said there is still the possibility of finding a bottle of well-aged Scotch there in the muskeg, as many were hidden at the time.”
