Welcome To
Boston Bar

North from Yale is Hell’s Gate, the deepest and narrowest point on the Fraser River, described by Simon Fraser as a place no human being should venture. Venturing past Hell’s Gate, you’ll find Boston Bar, the town named after a group of American miners who got lucky in 1858. Boston Bar grew as a bustling roadhouse stop, where, the story goes, Boston Bar Alex ran one of the best shops along the way. Today, it is still a favorite resting point for travelers following the Gold Rush Trail or for outdoor enthusiasts, particularly those venturing into the Nahatlatch Valley.
