Moccasin Flats

Feature type: settlement
Province: British Columbia
Location: Mountainview Road

During construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in the early 1910s, fill for the roadbed was often moved by wheelbarrow. Contracts for the work were given to small groups. A number of Indians who worked in such way near McBride camped in the area on Mountainview Road that is still known as Moccasin Flats.
