Seymour Arm

SEYMOUR ARM, pop 78, is an isolated hamlet at the head of the north arm of SHUSWAP LK. It flourished briefly as a supply centre during the Big Bend GOLD RUSH in the mid-1860s, then faded. For many years it was the home of artist Charles COLLINGS. The small community, named for Frederick SEYMOUR, governor of BC from 1864 to 1869, is linked to SICAMOUS by ferry.
