The first human inhabitants arriving after the ice age would have appeared here over 5,000 years ago. The Sko-mish, or “Squamish” First Nations tribes were supported by the rich forested living and dense abundance of land and water fresh food sources in the area.
During the voyage of Captain George Vancouver, in the 1700’s, the crew would discover many of British Columbia’s shorelines (islands and the mainland). In June of 1792, they would arrive at Darrell Bay, in Howe Sound, just south of Brackendale.
By 1889, farming families and gold rush adventures had become familiar with the area in passage or to settle. As families settled, they grew dairy farms in Brakendale. Forestry took over soon after and became the areas base economy. After the railway in 1956 and Sea-to-Sky Highway were complete, Brackendale and the area of Squamish was no longer solely dependant on transportation of goods or products by sea.
