In terms of topography the land is comprised of a few nice benches on the western shore of Moyie Lake offering some amazing elevated building sites and excellent access down to the water while most of the land is flat. A historic cabin is perched up on one of the benches and a nice trail extends down to the lake for excellent lake access. The lower level of the land offers some beautiful mature forest and wildland.

The same owner is selling the adjacent 349 acres of lakefront farmland (Listing 19207, $1.4 million) as well as 4 additional titles of land (12 acres or less). The multiple title option (inquire for package pricing) allows for multiple dwellings for extended families. If you are not aware very few large acreages let alone lakefront acreages allow for multiple cottages so by having these adjacent titles you could have multiple cottages for the extended family to enjoy.

The name "Moyie" or "Mooyie" is a corruption of the French "mouiller" meaning "to wet," so named by the trappers and fur traders who made their way through the sodden river valley. The French origin explains the pronunciation "Mo-yeah" which is still used today.
Discovery of a rich galena deposit in 1893, and the resulting St. Eugene Mine, brought the first settlers to this area in 1896. The developing mine influenced the expansion of Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. Ltd. (later Cominco and now Teck Cominco) and the Crow's Nest Pass Railway. The mine and the town prospered until 1911 when production dwindled to the point where only small quantities of ore were being shipped to the Trail smelter. By 1929 the company closed the mine for good. As you stand in the village today there is little to remind you there was once a population of around 1,500, seven hotels, three churches and businesses lining both sides of Victoria St. (Highway 3/95). A few houses, the fire hall, St. Peter's Church, tailings pile and the crumbling foundations of the old concentrator are all that remain of Moyie in its heyday.
