Just over a century ago, populated seasonally by First Nations peoples, Fernie was a pristine wilderness.
The region remained relatively untouched until the exploration of the Crowsnest Pass in by Michael Phillips. This discovery, and the sighting of outcroppings of coal, opened the region to the rest of the continent. Fernie takes its name from William Fernie, who along with Colonel James Baker were the main players in the drive to bring coal mining to the valley.
It took ten years to raise enough money to build the mines and the railway needed to transport the coal to market. In coal mining began in the region and in the Canadian Pacific Railroad arrived, and with it, the town of Fernie.
As Fernie grew, logging quickly became the second largest industry in the area with logging camps employing hundreds of men. Mining accidents ravaged the region from Fernie to the eastern entrance of the Crowsnest Pass in the early days of mining, claiming numerous lives. In August a second devastating fire gutted the entire city.
The townsfolk literally ran for their lives and in less than 90 minutes the town was reduced to ashes. The residents were undeterred and by Fernie was rebuilt: this time in brick and stone.
The population soared to 6, and Fernie flourished into a thriving city, guided by the unwavering resolve and determination of its residents. These fires, more than any other, shaped the physical appearance of Fernie to this day as is seen in the brick and stone buildings that beautify downtown Fernie. Many lightheartedly attribute the unfortunate history of the city to a curse that hangs over the valley.

Although discounted by many, the misfortune of the region is often reason enough to believe. In members of the Kootenay Tribes assembled in Fernie and performed a curse lifting ceremony, smoking a pipe of peace with local politicians. Still the legend lives on in the shadow on the mountain and in the stories of the townspeople.
