DescriptionBoston Bar, which began as a gold mining town, was named for a Dutchman who came from Boston to prospect in the 1860s. Because Boston was the home port to many of the ships bringing prospectors, local First Nations people called the newcomers Boston men. Boston Bar is a logging and trade center, with the Canadian National Railway passing through town. The Canadian Pacific Railway parallels the National on the other side of Fraser River Canyon and passes through the village of North Bend.
Boston Bar is the access point for the Nahatlatch Valley, which features the Nahatlatch River and a chain of lakes. Recreation includes camping, fishing and white-water rafting.
