    Area Data

    Walhachin is a small town located in the Thompson Canyon region of British Columbia. It was established in 1910 as a planned community by the Canadian Northern Railway as a way to attract settlers to the area. The town was envisioned as an agricultural community, and the name "Walhachin" is said to be derived from the words "walhalla," meaning "heaven" in Germanic mythology, and "Chinook," referring to the local Indigenous people.

    Walhachin is situated in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. It is located at the junction of the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) and the Cariboo Highway (Highway 97), making it an important transportation hub in the region.

    Cache Creek

    West of Walhachin, the Village of Cache Creek is a historic transportation junction and incorporated village 354 kilometres northeast of Vancouver. It is on the Trans-Canada Highway in the province of British Columbia at a junction with Highway 97. The same intersection and the town that grew around it was at the point on the Cariboo Wagon Road where a branch road, and previously only a trail, led east to Savona's Ferry on Kamloops Lake. This community is also the point at which a small stream, once known as Riviere de la Cache, joins the Bonaparte River.

    The name is derived, apparently, from a cache or buried and hidden supply and trade goods depot used by the fur traders of either the Hudson's Bay Company or its rival the North West Company. Although it was first incorporated as a Local District municipality with the name Cache Creek in 1959, the name has been associated with this community since long before incorporation.
