In the early 1900's, steamships transported passengers and goods into Stewart long before there were any roads. The railway was the only other means of transportation that was used. In 1906, the HMS Discovery from Seattle brought the first gold rush pioneers into Stewart.
By 1910 there was a full main street of stores, including four blocks, a population of 10,000 - 4 steamers a week, two very large wharves, 4 newspapers, many hotels and every kind of business. However, Stewart's dreams of expansion and of establishing permanent port facilities at the terminus of a transcontinental Canadian Railway never materialized.
Today, the economy of Stewart is supported by a varied range of industries including logging, mining and mining exploration and is destined to become a major port for distribution of ore and logs. Stewart deep sea, ice-free Port delivers easy and fast access to Asian Pacific markets and it is a viable alternative to Prince Rupert and Vancouver. Shorter turnaround times and private storage and loading facilities make Stewart the port of choice in northern B.C.
