W.P. Photo Challenge: Heritage “My Home”


Through the looking glass of its collections of artifacts and historic photographs, Alberni Valley celebrates community history, Nuu-chah-nulth art and culture and the region’s industrial roots in logging, fishing and farming. The Alberni Valley Heritage Network includes the Alberni Valley Museum, McLean Mill National Historic Site, the Alberni Pacific Railway, and the Maritime Discovery Centre. The Alberni Valley Museum, renowned as one of the finest community museums in the province, uses a unique and experimental visible storage system that makes nearly the entire collection available all the time. McLean Mill, the only steam-operated sawmill in Canada, can be reached by boarding a train at the 1912 CPR Station. The Alberni Pacific Railway carries passengers to the operating mill with a fully-restored 1929 Baldwin ex-logging steam locomotive. Alberni Valley’s Maritime Discovery Centre, topped by the light from a 111-year-old coastal lighthouse, is a unique maritime museum, situated on the waterfront with great access to the city’s deep-sea harbour. http://www.alberniheritage.com
