Chemainus became known as the home of a truly remarkable baseball team, the Sawdust Shifters.
By the summer of 1910, they had beaten every other team in sight and had established the tradition, that in baseball, the Chemainus team could be counted on to give a dazzling performance.
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 during November from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
