An Explorer's Guide to the Stewart-Cassiar Highway (BC Hwy 37)
A cemetery containing about 15 graves is located above McDame Post, an abandoned HBC post, overlooking the Rapid River. The majority of the graves, several of which are for children, are from 1929, likely due to one of the influenza or smallpox epidemics which decimated the native population of this region.
This granite monument is for Indian Agent Webster Scott Simpson, who died on the Dease River in July 1927 while "doing his duty."
