    Seymour Arm was once a thriving boomtown during the Big Bend Gold Rush on the Columbia River in 1865. At its peak, it had a population of 5,000 and was home to a variety of businesses such as stores, shoemakers, barber shops, saloons, bakeries, and more. The town was destroyed by fire in the late 1860s but was later revived by the English developers promoting the Seymour Arm Fruits Land Company. A post office, hotel, school, and hotel were established in 1910, but the hotel closed in 1925 and by 1940 the town was largely abandoned. Today, the hotel has been reopened with a restaurant and pub and one of the orchard-era mansions remain. The area is now a farming and recreational community.
