History / Biographical
Donald Simpson began prospecting on Hudson Bay Mountain in the early 1900s with his brother James, in an area now known as Simpson's Gulch. He acquired the Victory Group of claims around 1906 and the Empire Group around 1909. Donald's wife Mary assisted him with this work after their marriage in 1915. The Empire Group was partially sold to Axel Elmstead in 1934, and eventually fully sold by Mary sometime after Donald's death in 1936. The Victory Group remained in the Simpson family until 2019.

History / Biographical
St. James’ Anglican Church was constructed in 1913 and served as a spiritual and community center for the town of Smithers for over 60 years. It fell into disrepair after the parish of St. James moved to a new building on Princess Street in 1975. Beginning in the early 2000s, a dedicated and dynamic group of volunteers worked to renovate and reopen the Old Church as a community hall. This vision was realized in 2005, with a public garden opening beside the Church the following year. Administered and maintained by the Bulkley Valley Museum, the revitalized Old Church remains a popular venue for weddings, lectures, parties, meetings, concerts, and performances.
