In 1793 explorer Simon Fraser and a group of explorers travelled westward along the Peace River via canoe and were the first Europeans to enter the area. These explorers were followed by the Hudson’s Bay Company who established a fur trading post/fort directly across the Peace River canyon from the current town site of Hudson’s Hope.
Although the exact origins of the name Hudson’s Hope are unknown, its first known recording was from 1868. In 1899 the fort was moved to the present-day location on the Northern bank of the Peace River.
The area was largely explored by prospectors and survey crews in the early 20th century, as the area was opened to a mineral stake in 1908 and land grants in 1912. In 1942 the construction of the 97 Alaska Highway increased traffic to the region and helped spur the region’s coal mining industry.
Rural and urban development was enhanced by the construction of the W.A.C. Bennett Damn and hydro station in 1962. To help finance and organize the construction of this infrastructure, the Hudson’s Hope Improvement District was incorporated along with the Municipality of Hudson’s Hope. A second dam was constructed in 1980 several kilometres down river from the original dam known as the Peace Canyon Dam.
