FOCH was an isolated farming (see AGRICULTURE) and LOGGING settlement 30 km north of POWELL RIVER near the Theodosia River and Olsen Lake. The Olson family first homesteaded there in 1913; the lake is probably named for them despite the spelling difference. The post office, originally Olsen Lake, changed to Foch at the end of WWI in honour of the Allied leader Marshall Ferdinand Foch. The community was abandoned by the mid-1950s.
