PACIFIC LIME CO. CAIRN

At one time there were two Cairns at the head end of the government wharf that marked the entrance to the Pacific Lime Co. properties. When BC Ferries expanded the parking lot one of the Cairns was destroyed and one remained until 2000 when it was relocated to its present location at the Texada Heritage Societies Museum outdoor display.

Plaque reads:

The Pacific Lime Company Monument was moved from a nearby location and reconstructed in the year 2000 by Ash Grove Cement Company and Texada Island Heritage Society. It recognizes the contribution of men and women of diverse cultural backgrounds who built logging and limestone industries on Texada. From the turn of the century through the 1950ís, Blubber Bay had a Chinese community, community center, school, stables, doctorís office, general store, bunkhouses, restaurant, recreational dock and more than 200 residents.
