  • Red L. in 1925 by two brothers named Howey and George McNeeley along with W. F. Morgan. News of the discovery brought hundreds of gold seekers with dog teams, and 10,000 claims were staked.
  • Between 1930 and 1968, more than $300 million worth of gold was mined.
  • The community was named after the lake which, according to First Nations Peoples legend, got its name when a giant moose, shot dead by a hunter's arrow, fell into the water, where it bled for many days, colouring the lake red.
  • Red rocks in the area, when crushed and mixed with grease, provided war paint for the First Nations Peoples.
