The Barkerville Cemetery is located in a historic gold rush town in the Cariboo Region of B.C. The town was formed in 1862 when gold was discovered by William Billy Barker on Williams Creek. Between 1862 and 1870 over 100,000 people travelled the Cariboo Waggon Road converging on the goldfields and the boomtown called Barkerville. In its heyday this was the largest city west of Chicago and north of San Francisco!
