Ord Road is named after H. Ord, one of the earliest settlers in Brocklehurst, before World War II. He ran a hop farm along Tranquille road starting in 1936. Hop fields were also planted east of Kamloops near Campbell Creek. The yield from the Hop fields was quite good, and in its heyday, the fields employed over 250 pickers (1943). Until recently, Hops were still grown in the Kamloops Region.
