Falkland & Area
Falkland, British Columbia, is a rural settlement of about 600 residents, situated along Highway 97, between Vernon and Kamloops.
In a narrow part of the Salmon River Valley at the base of Tuktakamin Mountain, the area was originally known as Slahaltkan, an Indian name meaning "meeting of the winds". Not a windy place in fact, the story goes that natives didn't favour the area for hunting camps because of downdrafts and the frequent shift in wind direction. It was impossible to stay out of campfire smoke.
Falkland was named after Colonel Falkland Warren, an English gentleman and early pioneer of the valley who pursued the establishment of a post office in the area.
Falkland today... is home to children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of its early settlers, along with a slowly increasing mixture of newcomers who relish the community's stability and friendliness.
Newcomers find Falkland is both community and family oriented. Life centres around the primary grade school and the community hall.
