Within minutes of twentieth century comfort, travelers can visit centuries-old Native culture and decades of pioneering spirit. The Gitksan and Wet-Suwet'En peoples have made their home here for centuries. Located at the confluence of the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers, the Hazeltons became bustling pioneer communities in the 1860's.

This shared history, in a magnficent wilderness setting has made the Hazeltons the "historic heartland of northwestern BC". The original settlement, "Old Town", shares a glimpse of the wild west, where Europeans opened the area as a service centre for the entire Northwest in the 1860's. Here, old-fashioned storefronts and historic buildings (some now restaurants & shops) recall the gold rush days.
