in maintaining a good relationship with the local Nez Perce (Nez Perce tribe) clients led to Black's transfer to the company's Thompson's River Post (Thompson River) (now Kamloops) in 1830. In 1837, Black was appointed as Chief Factor in charge of the inland posts of the Columbia (Columbia River). Across the Fraser River is the small town of North Bend, which could only be accessed by rail (train) or by aerial ferry until recently when the two lane bridge was built. The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) has a small terminal here that is the half way point between Vancouver and Kamloops. The Building of the Railway played an important role in this region, first with the construction of the CPR line (1881–1885) then later the Canadian Northern Railway (today the Canadian National Railway) line on the Boston Bar side of the river. Boston Bar is a Canadian National Railway divisional point, where the Ashcroft Subdivision from Kamloops to Boston Bar joins the Yale Subdivision from Boston Bar to Vancouver. North Bend is also at the doorstep of the Nahatlatch Valley, a chain of 3 lakes and the Nahatlatch River.

The community voted to became an Incorporated Municipality in November 2007. Winning the election for the very first Mayor was Mr. Mike Fennell, one of the founding families of the community. The closest hospital in the region is the Royal Inland Hospital located to the south in Kamloops, BC and to the north in Clearwater (Clearwater, British Columbia). BC.
