History of Port Moody, British Columbia

European explorers from Spain and Britain mapped the area in search of Sea Otter fur. As more permanent settlements developed in the area, Port Moody became significant as an alternate supply route when the Fraser River was hazardous or blocked. In 1858, the Royal Engineers under the command of Colonel Richard Clement Moody (whom the city was named for) were dispatched from England to survey the new Crown colony of mainland British Columbia. The group of military officers arrived and set up their barracks in New Westminster. After surveying townsites, mapping the area and constructing several major roads the Royal Engineers were recalled in 1863. Today, Port Moody is largely a suburban development area, especially around an area known as Heritage Mountain. The city still retains many historical buildings.
