Strelaeff Village

District: Pass Creek
Province: British Columbia
Country: Canada
 
In 1909-1910, Community Doukhobors from Saskatchewan established a village in the Pass Creek (Lugovoye) district of British Columbia. It was known as Strelaeff Village or Strelyaevo Selo (Стреляево Село) in Russian after the Strelaeff family of Doukhobors who lived there. According to tradition, there were many beautiful girls in the village. For this reason, it was also known as Hollywood (Голывуд) after the glamorous film capital. By 1961-1963, the CCUB lands were sold and the village was disbanded. [District Lot 8640, Kootenay District]
