Bamberton Historical Society

Bamberton Archives and Displays

Bamberton is considered by the BC Archives to be one of the most important industrial sites in BC’s history and through the tireless efforts of the BHS volunteers this history has been shared with nearly 10,000 people who have visited the site over the past 8 years. Live historical theatre, 2 documentaries, a book and dozens of community presentations have spread Bamberton history far beyond the Cowichan Valley.

The BHS holds the only archives and artifacts of this amazing history. These are extremely valuable because they are the only ones in existence and date from 1911. These archives and artifacts are currently being moved to a storage unit but the BHS is hoping another location can be found so this important history can again be shared with the public and preserved for future generations.

The tours and museum are no longer offered at Bamberton but you can still share in our history by visiting the Heritage Museum in Mill Bay.  Along with the Mill Bay/Malahat and the Cobble Hill Historical Society, we have created a new museum in a heritage building located at 2851 Church Way in Mill Bay. Once again we will be sharing Bamberton’s unique story with the public ... come visit us.
