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.
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.
