Okanagan-Shuswap Nearby Towns and Attractions: Enderby
This 2,000 population community is on the west shore of the slow-moving Shuswap River. Many of Enderby’s buildings date back to 1905, with mostly buildings in brick from the town’s two brick factories. The river stretch between here and Mara Lake is popular with houseboaters and canoeists. The town is overlooked by the Enderby Cliffs on the east shore of the Shuswap River.
This community had a number of names in its early days including Spallumcheen, Steamboat Landing, Fortunes' Landing, Lambly's Landing and Belvidere. When the river flooded in 187, a lady at a tea party recited the Jean Inglelow poem The high tide on the coast of Lincolshire which included a line about the Brides of Enderby. This just caught on.
