HULLCAR, 20 km south of SALMON ARM in the municipality of SPALLUMCHEEN, is a farming (see AGRICULTURE) district settled in the 1870s by James Steele, who brought the first thoroughbred horses to BC from eastern Canada. Fruit was grown until the 1920s, then grain and cattle (see CATTLE INDUSTRY). A school (1892–1921), SAWMILL (1911–26) and community hall were established. The name comes from an OKANAGAN word that refers to a nearby bluff, though the exact meaning is unclear.
