ARROWHEAD, a community at the north end of the ARROW LKS 40 km south of REVELSTOKE, was the terminus of a CPR branch line from Revelstoke completed in 1896, but the area is mostly submerged today after the KEENLEYSIDE DAM raised water levels in the 1960s. The rail line connected with sternwheelers such as the Rossland and the Minto, which ran to NAKUSP and ROBSON. Steamer service ended in 1954. See also ARROWHEAD & KOOTENAY RWY.
