KEEFERS, on the west side of the FRASER Canyon 72 km north of HOPE, was a CPR station and workers' depot with a post office (1895–1965), general store and school that made it a centre for surrounding ranchers and loggers (see CATTLE INDUSTRY; LOGGING). It was named after George A. Keefer, construction engineer for this section of the rail line, who lived here with his family.
