History & Heritage

Powell River is rich in history and can claim bragging rights to several ‘firsts’, not the least of which is the Sick Benefit Society started by Dr. Henderson. Before the innovative founders of the Powell River Company arrived in 1909 the Sliammon people, now the Tla'amin First Nation, occupied the area for thousands of years.

While Powell River is no longer considered a ‘mill town’, it has benefited greatly from the industry that was the economic underpin of the area for well over 75 years.
