History of Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Salmon Arm officially began in 1890, when residents successfully petitioned the federal government for a post office. Salmon Arm attracted serious attention as a fruit-growing city as early as 1904, when the farmers' institute sponsored well received exhibits at both Kamloops and New Westminster. Formal local government came May 15, 1905 with the proclamation of Salmon Arm Municipality, after a majority of residents signed a petition advocating incorporation. The ‘City of Salmon' was formed in 1912 and later was changed to Salmon Arm.
