    The Aboriginal people who inhabited the north-central area of British Columbia called themselves 'Uda ukelh' which means "People who travel by boat on water early in the morning." The first European to encounter this Native group was Alexander Mackenzie, who traversed their territory enroute to the Pacific in 1793. He first learned about them from the Sekani and employed the term Carrier in his writings. In 1808 Simon Fraser explored what is now known as the Fraser River and named a major tributary for Jules Maurice Quesnel, his clerk.

    Quesnel came to be called Quesnelle to distinguish itself from Quesnel Forks 60 miles upriver and by 1900 it was spelled the way it is now. It is located along the gold mining trail known as the Cariboo Wagon Road and was the commercial centre of the Cariboo Gold Rush. It marks one end of the Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail. Because of its location on the Fraser River, it was an important landing for sternwheelers during 1862 until 1886 and then from 1909 until 1921. The last sternwheeler on the upper Fraser was Quesnel’s own namesake craft, and hometown product, the Quesnel. The community continued to grow and in 1979 became a city. Today, forestry continues to be the leading industry while agriculture, mining, and tourism are also important parts of Quesnel’s economy.
