Heffley Creek

HEFFLEY CREEK, 20 km north of KAMLOOPS on the CNR and N THOMPSON R, is an AGRICULTURAL and LOGGING settlement named after Adam P. Heffley, pioneer rancher (see CATTLE INDUSTRY), in 1862. Heffley was a partner of Frank Laumeister, who brought 2 dozen CAMELS to BC and tried to use them as pack animals during the GOLD RUSH in the CARIBOO. Bert Balison built a SAWMILL in 1951 (it was later closed) and added a plywood plant in the 1970s, which was sold to Tolko Industries.
