The area around Port Moody was once home to the Squamish and Musqueam bands of the Coast Salish people. Their ancestors occupy the Lower Mainland for a thousand years. These Native Indians hunted, gathered shellfish, and fished in the area. There is evidence they camped in the region during the summer based on artifacts found at the eastern portion of Burrard Inlet. Europeans begin to occupy the area in the eighteen-hundreds. Fur traders frequented this region and gold prospectors arrived during the Cariboo Gold Rush in 1858. Colonel Richard Moody commanded a group of Royal engineers in 1859 to blaze the trail that would be known as North Road. This allowed ships anchored in the Burrard Inlet to unload equipment should the area be attacked from the south. The town was never attacked and began to grow. Today Port Moody is known as “The City of Arts”. Artists were originally attracted to Port Moody because of beautiful scenery and low rent. Today art groups and a wide variety of facilities help to create a diverse artistic community which supports numerous annual festivals. Popular festivals in Port Moody include the Festival of Arts in September, Golden Spike Days in July, and the Canadian Film Festival in February.
