Columbia District - Spokane House, Fort George

1822-1825

From 1822 to 1825, Kennedy served as chief factor in the Columbia District, first at Spokane House, then at Fort George. He spent less than three full years in the west, but they were an eventful time in the Hudsonís Bay Companyís history. In 1824, Governor Simpson arrived in the Columbia District and made extensive changes to its organization. Kennedy left the district in 1825, accompanying Governor Simpson back across the mountains, as far as Fort Carleton.
