name of this post office was suggested by Mrs. L. Quimby,
whose husband bought the property where the office is situated
in May 1922. The office was established July 1,1924, and
closed August 31, 1937, with mail to Bule River. Mrs. Quimby
selected the name because McKenize River nearby is the home
of the popular rainbow trout, Salmo gairdneri.
