st In 1811the Colombia was mapped for Westward expansion
In the 1860's the river,'' big Eddy '' yielded some short time wealth during the '' Big Bend Gold Rush ''
During the construction of the ''Railroad '' in the 1880's the '' Eddy '' became known as the

At first the City was named Farwell after Surveyer A ,S Farwell.
After a court battle between Farwell and the Dominion Government the
City name was changed to '' Revelstoke ''named after Edward Baring Lord Revelstoke, who with his bank money saved the CPR from bankrupcy.
Revelstoke became a City March first 1899.
We stayed overnight at the Powder Springs Inn, in Revelstoke .
On my walk through the Town I seen a wonderful Town with several Historic Buildings , including this Domed Courthouse,this is a real beautiful building .The adress of this Court House is 1123 Second Street West , very easy to find about 10 minute walk from the centre of Revelstoke.
The Fire Station Hall and the Stations Museum were a real joy to see also very short distance to walk to.
This is a picture of the Revelstoke Railway Museum, a fantastic looking building ,and in this building and outside this buiding the Railway History is well documented and explained .
Retired ex Engineers volunteer there time to tell you about their experiences and a beautiful CPR locomotive #5468 is displayed and this locomotive was built in 1948.
