    Before European contact, Burton was known as Xaieken, a large village of the Sinixt First Nations People.

    This historic trading town got its modern name in 1895 when the Burton Brothers established it as Burton City. The Hudson’s Bay Company actively traded with the First Nations for furs. At this time the gold miners also had their camps and boat launch just before the gold rush of Caribou Creek started. In 1908 the road was built from Burton to Nakusp, and in the 20’s the Monashee Pass Road to Vernon was opened. After the miners began to leave, logging became the driving industry in the valley. The original townsite and much of its First Nation’s history was submerged when the Keenleyside Dam flooded the area in 1968. A new town site was established on higher ground at that time. The old town site had four stores, gas stations, cafe, school, playing fields, a community hall, a large Federal government wharf, a hotel with a pub and three churches. The old townsite was north of the mouth of Cariboo creek with farms north, south and east of the townsite.
