Doe River

DOE RIVER, 30 km northeast of DAWSON CREEK near the Alberta border, is a pioneer PEACE R AGRICULTURAL and ranching (see CATTLE INDUSTRY) community. It was opened to settlement in 1911, though most homesteaders arrived after WWI. A school (1921), store (1928) and SAWMILL (1932) soon operated; the first Doe River stampede (see also RODEO) was held in 1941. The old community hall still stands.
