New Westminster is the first city and capital of the Colony of British Columbia from 1858 to 1866; it lost its capital city status to Victoria when British Columbia added Vancouver Island to its holdings. It was named by the Queen of England, which led to the city's nickname, "The Royal City." It was also a major economic center during the Fraser River Gold Rush, but its importance was soon surpassed by the new city of Vancouver. Today, Columbia Street (pictured) is the primary commercial strip of the city.
