    Located at the end of Old Remo Road in Terrace, BC this 80 acre parcel has been separated into two parts by Alwyn Creek. There’s approximately 6.5 acres on the east side of the river channel with dedicated road access which needs to be developed and approximately 71 acres across the river channel. Please refer to the mapping section of this listing. Access to the large western portion of the property requires a boat or snowmobile in the winter when the river channel has frozen.

    Although the property was logged years ago there is still some merchantable timber value on the property including a few towering old-growth cedar trees and some second-generation timber. The majority of the property is cottonwood and alder, but there’s also spruce and cedar in pockets. In additional to the handful of large second growth cedar trees there are probably a dozen or more spruce in the 3-5 ft diameter range. The southwest corner also has a nice pocket of younger cedar and spruce. All in all, there would be ample large logs to mill into cants to build a very large timber frame house and or barn. The owner has a friend in the timber business that estimates the gross timber value to be approximately $120,000.

    The property is within the floodplain of the Old Remo area, and has been known to experience flooding during the peak spring waters in May and June. Most of the year the property is dry, but this is a significant consideration if you’re looking to build a home or cabin on the property. Finding a location on the property that is above the 200-year floodplain may be challenging.

    The soil on the property is extremely fertile and could potentially be cleared for farming activities.

    The property is situated on the doorstep of a true outdoorsman’s paradise. If you’re someone with a jet boat that’s looking for a private back to nature retreat this could be the spot. The Skeena River is one of the premier salmon fishing destinations in the world. It is home to all five species of Pacific salmon: Chinook, coho (silver salmon), sockeye, pink, and chum salmon. Each species has its own specific run timing, with the peak season generally occurring from June to September. Steelhead fishing: the Skeena River is famous for its steelhead fishing. Steelhead are sea-run rainbow trout known for their incredible fighting abilities and acrobatic displays. The Skeena River supports both summer-run and winter-run steelhead, offering opportunities for anglers throughout the year. The prime time for steelhead fishing is from September to April.

    Skeena River

    Though the Skeena River was valued as an important inland water route, the 288-kilometre trip from coastal Port Essington to Hazelton, at the junction of the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers, was hardly a leisurely cruise. Hudson's Bay canoe brigades, paddling sturdy, Haida-built cedar craft, encountered strong currents, swirling rapids, deep canyons and sharp bends on their week-long journey to the inland terminus.

    Small steamboats appeared briefly on the turbulent river from 1864-1866, hauling supplies for the ill-fated Collins Overland Telegraph. When a transatlantic cable put an end to the ambitious North America-to-Siberia project, the steamboats were retired.

    Fifteen years later, in 1891, the Hudson's Bay Company launched a specially-commissioned Skeena sternwheeler known as the Caledonia. At 100 feet in length, she was judged too short to handle well, and was returned to the Victoria shipyards to be lengthened. During the next two decades the Company operated a succession of sternwheelers between Port Essington and Hazelton, often competing fiercely with private entrepreneurs such as Robert Cunningham, who launched the Hazelton in 1901. Skeena river boating had become a lucrative business, serving the traders, prospectors, merchants and missionaries that briefly transformed Hazelton into the largest community in north-western British Columbia.

    The Skeena's steam boating era was dominated by two enduring themes: the race for time to complete the upriver trip, and the adaptation of ship design to the rigors of the river. To the amusement of onlookers, bitter rivalry between sternwheeler captains led to frequent river tantrums, including the 1902 ramming of the HBC's Mount Royal by Cunningham's Hazelton. But no matter what the skill of the riverboat crews, a steamboat trip up the river took several days and involved considerable risk. At Kitselas Canyon, near present-day Terrace, shore-anchored cables were required to draw the boats through the perilous gorge. Six crew members drowned at the Canyon in 1907 while trying to free the wind-blown Mount Royal from the rocks at Ring Bolt Island.

    The final chapter of Skeena steam boating paralleled the building of the Grand Trunk Railway early in the 20th century. Construction supplies for the railroad were carried up the Skeena by a number of privately-owned steamships. In 1912, the Inlander made the last of the Skeena steamboat runs, guided by the captain who first steered the Caledonia up the river in 1891.


    A man with a "Little" vision and big dreams arrived in the Skeena River valley in March 1905 by snowshoeing through gruelling deep snow along the Kitimat Trail. George Little liked what he saw, and knew that this land was indeed the land that he was searching for when he left his native Ontario. His keen interest and faith in Terrace were contagious and soon gave way to a flood of pioneer settlers, eventually, resulting in a thriving city that respects the man who founded Terrace and recognized the potential of the Skeena Valley.

    Fitting nicely into his vision of Terrace, George Little donated 47 acres to the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The station stop was originally named "Littleton"; however, as there was already a Littleton in New Brunswick, Little changed the name to "Terrace" in reference to the local geography. Little established a sawmill to accommodate the demand for railway ties. In 1955, Little rode the first C.N.R. train to Kitimat passing over the same route he had trekked one half century earlier.

    Terrace Mutiny

    During World War II, military units composed primarily of conscripts from central and eastern Canada were stationed in Terrace. Morale was low due to the poor relationship between the soldiers and the local populace, the isolation, the damp weather, lack of recreation, crowded facilities, and the distance from home. In late 1944, because of declining enlistment and heavy casualties, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King was forced to reconsider his promise to not deploy conscripts overseas. Mackenzie King decided to a one-time assignment of conscripts for overseas service. On November 24, 1944, news that conscripts might be sent overseas triggered a mutiny amongst the men stationed in Terrace. It took until November 29 for officers to restore order to the troops. The Terrace Mutiny was the most serious breach of discipline in Canadian military history.
