    Description

    Two separate titles with a common border. The lower acreage borders the Telkwa River and has undisturbed woodlands going right to the river which meanders for 6,000+ ft forming the southern boundary of the property. There are sandy beaches and beautiful stands of evergreen intermingled with deciduous patches all along the river. There is probably 40 acres or so in this area that is quite level and probably subject to intermittent flooding, however it is just like a park. The upper 320 acres has 2 main cabins and one smaller one along with a large (40' x 80') useable barn and 4 outhouses. The cabins and barn are located well above the river elevation in a 50-acre clearing. There is good road access and cell service to the property. The property is visited regularly by moose, deer, bears and the occasional elk.

    History

    It was in 1906 that the valley's first European settlers put down stakes at a place that First Nations people referred to as "Where the Rivers Meet."

    The first town site in the area, Aldermere, was originally established on the bluff above the Bulkley River located on the Telegraph Trail system and a central restocking spot for prospectors following the call of the Gold Rush. As the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway began constructing the western section of their railway in 1907, many businesses and settlers began to move down the hill to the present site of Telkwa to be closer to the anticipated railway and an easier water supply.

    Today, over 100 years later, the community of Telkwa continues to be called home by its nearly 1,500 residents. An extensive walking trail system winds through the original town site of Aldermere and embraces Telkwa's parks and historical buildings, including the restored 1910 St. Stephen's Anglican Church and the Pioneer Museum. Many of Telkwa's historical buildings, including the library, remain as testaments to our past and can be seen with a self-guided walking tour.
