green-bootsThe area now known as Roberts Creek is the traditional territory of both the Shishalh and Squamish First Nations. Roberts Creek was traditionally known as “Hwah-sam” meaning, “big fat salmon.”  Settlers arrived in 1889.

Those of us who live in Roberts Creek are proud of the history and sense of community that flourishes here.  We try to look after each other and keep the fires of community burning. We love our artists, actors, gardeners, musicians, academics, loggers, draft dodgers, carpenters, fisherfolks, writers, teachers, small businesses, doctors, veterans, and old timers.

We are proud of our reputation as “The Independent Nation of Roberts Creek.”

"...Can you direct me to anyone that may be able to assist with locating information on two people that lived in Roberts Creek many years ago. My great Uncle John Scambler Fisher married a woman named Antoinette Claire Settle - Fomerly Cook, the death certificate of John gives his address as Old School Road Roberts Creek. John was born in 1884 in Dudley England and died in Roberts Creek 1st October 1958, he is buried  Seaview Cemetery. Back in 2006 I was given a small amount of information from and Elizabeth Bakewell and a Mary White but would love to hear anything further about my great uncle. Can you help in any way ?
