The pattern of early settlement in the Shuswap was influenced by the location of arable land, the modes and challenges of transportation and the early lumber industry, which resulted in a multitude of communities, most of which continue to thrive today.

As settlers flooded into the Shuswap between 1896 and 1915, their transportation options anywhere except near the railway were limited as there were no roads.
