On the 1919 map, the creek appears as “Holliday (Baker) Creek,” perhaps named for Charlie Baker, who froze to death on Macleod Creek in January 1909. With three other men Baker had prospected the Goat River, and got lost returning to Barkerville.
A different Baker Creek flowing into the Columbia River is an official name.
