Dease Lake was established around 1839, and was once a Hudson Bay Company Trading Post. The town got its name from the chief factor of the Hudson Bay Company, Peter Warren Dease. Dease Lake was a hub of activity when the Cassiar gold rush erupted in 1872. And, in 1941, Dease Lake was a transportation hub for supplies headed for the troops that were building the Alaska Highway.
