A tie camp was situated at Clark’s Beach at the end of Malcolm Road in Chemainus in the 1930s.
Timbers for railway ties were dumped there to be distributed to different ports. The timbers were a byproduct of the local logging industry.
The Chemainus Valley Museum contains many interesting displays and stories about the area’s rich history.
The museum is located at 9799 Waterwheel Cres. in downtown Chemainus. It’s open seven days a week in September from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
