    Origin of Place Name: The name dates back to at least 1867 when it appeared on an Admiralty chart. It seems to have got its start as a fishing community and Union Steamship Co landing when Moses Ireland, a renowned timber cruiser, established a small hotel and ranch there in 1901. The Encyclopedia of Raincoast Place Names notes, “A store followed, and a post office in 1911. Ireland came to BC for gold, went into business with Sewell Moody, who started Burrard Inlet’s first sawmill (and first industry), logged in the Cortes Island area and ran a freight business on the Skeena R. Bold Point lost its steamship service in 1952, its post office in 1960 and in the early 2000s was slumbering in rural peace.”
