Along the Gold Rush Trail between Kamloops and Quesnel (as it is known today) a roadhouse had been built in 1862. The house (Bridge Creek House, named after the nearby creek) would later become known as 100 Mile House marking the miles from the origin of the trail at Lillooet. By 1930, the town consisted of a roadhouse, a general store, a post office, a telegraph office, and a power plant. Population 12.
Today, the population is not very large however this town is responsible as a staple service and commercial area of the surrounding communities and industries within the Cariboo - a combined population of 200,000!
