The Thetis Island to Kuper (Penelakut) Island Bridge

Connector eventually deemed unnecessary

This bridge crossed over to Kuper (Penelakut) Island mainly to visit the school and to access the post office.

Once the post office was moved to Thetis Island and with the installation of Government wharves on both Islands, the bridge was not essential. Removal of the bridge was requested to allow larger seine boats and tugs to pass through the dredged canal.

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.
