It was named for John Fall Allison. Allison was commissioned by Governor J. Douglas in about 1860 to inspect gold strikes on the Similkameen River. He returned to report finding a new low pass between the Skagit and Similkameen rivers. Allison mined near Hope and was later a pioneer rancher in the Princeton area. Manning Provincial Park headquarters is situated 9 km east of the pass.
