Located about 120 km south west of Dease Lake on the banks of the Telegraph Creek and Stikine River is the home of the Tahltan First Nations. In the past, the Tahltan and Tlinglit people are said to have met to conduct major trade in this small northern supply outpost.
Today, Telegraph Creek is a predominantly Native settlement, with many restored buildings dating back a century or more. There are many deserted historic buildings in the town itself, as well as some that have been restored, including the original Hudson's Bay Company Store, which is now a cafe, general store and lodge.
