Some buildings of Chemainus rarely change.

Another example is the main part of the Horseshoe Bay Hotel that has been around since the late 1800s.

Its life started as a horse and carriage stop, and got its first liquor license in 1883.

Many famous people such as John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie have visited.

Drop in for a pint or a coffee, wander through the beautiful streets of Chemainus and then step back in time at the Chemainus Valley Museum.

The museum at 9799 Waterwheel Cres. is now open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
