ALBERT CANYON, a station on the CPR 35 km east of REVELSTOKE, became a service centre in the late 1890s for MINERS working on the north fork of the Illecillewaet R. It was named after Albert L. Rogers, who helped his uncle, the survey engineer A.B. ROGERS, find a route for the CPR through the SELKIRK MTS. Today, apart from a trading post, campground and mineral pool, it is a ghost town.
