Blue Creek

It was an early sawmill town and stage station named for nearby Blue Creek, a tributary of the Colville River. That stream was named for John Blue, an early settler, at whose station the stage drivers changed horses.

The town was once a shipping point for farm products and some copper and dolomite from neighboring mines. Today few traces remain of the former shipping center here.
