My great Aunt and Uncle, Molly and Jim Johansen (?) had the house that became part of The Captain's Inn. We visited them in the late 1950s. Do you have any pictures or information on them or their house? Thanks so much, Lynda Pitt-Brooke
The First Nations Display, is very knowledgeable. This display should be left as is, as it does touch very lightly on the culture of the Pentlach People. There has been much research done, to bring this knowledge to the public's attention. It does let the public have a knowledge of the historic past. This past does share knowledge of how Qualicum came to being where and why it is today. Thank you for having and sharing a portion of our past. I am a member of the Pentlatch Nation and proud to share a portion of our culture. Thank you, Jess Recalma, on a job well done.
Museum website looks great!
My Grandmothers' cousin was Robert Ivan Knight who founded Qualicum College. He was the Grandson of Robert Knight who founded & edited the Times of India. I have never seen a photo of Robert Ivan & would be interested to know if one survives. I have been doing my family tree for the past 25 years. The family on my paternal grandfather's side(Marshall) traces the family back to Henry VIII's eldest sister Margaret & beyond, including the late Queen Mothers' Lyon family from Glamis. I was pleased to see that the original building has been restored.
