Bridge River
Bridge River flows southeast into the Fraser River, just north of Lillooet. Local First Nations, likely St'át'imc, built a toll bridge across the river's mouth during the height of the Fraser River gold rush; mining continued there well after the rush, in various locations along the river, until the final mine closure in 1971.1
