Montrose, BC, incorporated as a village in 1956, population 1030 (2011c), 1012 (2006c). The Village of Montrose is located in the West Kootenay district of southeastern British Columbia. It is situated on a wide bench along Beaver Creek, just east of the creek's junction with the Columbia River, about 11 km southeast of the smelter city of TRAIL. In the early 1940s Leon Simmons and Trail lawyer Arthur G. Cameron developed the site for residential use. The village was named by Cameron after his hometown in Scotland. Most residents work in nearby Trail.
