Rumors of Delany

Stories from somewhere about one of the first pioneers in the Dry Falls / Deep Lake area, a man by the name of Delany. He lived close to Spring and Meadow Creek, just off the Cariboo Trail. Now a state ran camp sits on what was once part of his ranch. Close by are these stone remnants of some forgotten buildings. They seem to be piled rock foundations and every here and there concrete, cinder blocks and old piping can be found. I remember my Grandma talking about this settlement in the 1970s when I was a child. There was an accident, I can’t remember if it was snow plows or bulldozers making a fire line, but part of the rock walls in this area were plowed over before anyone realized what had happened. Some of the rock walls still remain hidden and perhaps once more forgotten waiting for the blade of progress to reshape history.
