North of Old Hazelton lies the Kispiox Valley with villages of Glenvowell, and Kispiox in there.

Original settlement of Old Hazelton was on the North bank of the Bulkley River, where the Bulkley meets the Skeena River.

South Hazelton, or South Town on lot 851, was developed when the GTRP, came thru the area.

New Hazelton, or New Town, was developed at that same time. There were some major lawsuits on lot sales in these newer communities, due to the railroad.
Speculators and the railroad fought a battle for profit.
