Settlement and Industry in the Wild West Coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Author(s): Adrian T. Myers

Year: 2018

Summary

A planned 30 km long paved path connecting the towns of Tofino and Ucluelet through Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, prompted an opportunity for an archaeological assessment of a cross section of this coastal Canadian National Park. The survey recorded over 25 historic sites that together illustrate a multi-layered past of historic settlement and use of the area which included homesteading, mining, logging, Second World War and Cold War Era military defense, and even a 1960’s era counter-culture settlement.
