Your 2020-2021 Executives:
How Moore Lake got its Name
Alfred Moore had a Fur Trading Post at Moore Falls prior to 1817 and traded with the local First Nations in the area. He then relocated his Fur Trading Post to the top end of Gull Lake (from 1817-1827). When the Moore Lake Area was surveyed and mapped, the locals identified the Lake as "Moore's Lake and Falls" after Alfred Moore.
