History

Enderby has gone by many names.

Steamboat Landing. Belvedere. Spallumcheen. Lambly’s Landing.

Finally, it received its current name in 1887.

The name comes from a poem, “High Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire,” which was recited during a tea party as participants took a glance at the Shuswap River.

There’s a place named Enderby mentioned in the poem, and it stuck.

Enderby’s first white settler (indeed, the North Okanagan’s) was Alexander Leslie Fortune, who obtained land in the area through pre-emption in 1886.

For a time, grain was Enderby’s main crop, but then its flour mill closed and production shifted to dairy.
