Hedley is an unincorporated town in southern British Columbia, Canada, named after Robert R. Hedley, the manager of the Hall Smelter in Nelson. Hedley is located at the foot of Nickel Plate Mountain in the Similkameen. The town had a population of approximately 400 as of 2005. In the early 1900s, Hedley's population peaked over 1,000 people, primarily due to the gold mining industry. The Hedley Museum and the Mascot Mine Museum display artifacts and photographs from this era.
