History

The post was centred in the centuries-old homeland of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, whose very name means "people of the confluence". Agricultural settlement around Fort George began about 1906 when it was realized that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (later CN Rail) would pass near the fur post. The railway arrived in 1914 and construction of the railway townsite commenced. The City of Prince George was incorporated on March 6, 1915.
