Hazelton BridgeOld Town. New Town. South Town.
These are some of the names of the villages of the Hazeltons. The three Hazeltons are located close to the junction of the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers. The original Hazelton settlement, built on the flats where the hazel nut bushes grew thickly, began as a riverboat stop. South Hazelton or "South Town" and New Hazelton or "New Town", sprang up with the building of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in the early 1900's.

Kispiox, Gitanyow, Gitwangak, Glen Vowell, Gitanmaax, Hagwielget and Gitseguecla are villages of the people of the First Nations. They have lived in this area for thousands of years with much of their rich culture preserved at the reconstructed 'Ksan Village.

The more recent history of the area involved the gold rush and there are many historic sites marked throughout the area.

The entire area is becoming increasingly popular with outdoor enthusiasts; the rivers offer excellent fishing, canoeing and rafting, on more solid ground, there is ample opportunity for hiking, camping, wildlife viewing and trail rides.
