This site is dedicated to the European Pioneers and their settlement of Metchosin. Metchosin was part of the Hudson Bay Company fur trading territory known as New Caledonia. New Caledonia encompassed the area of central British Columbia to Oregon.
Metchosin was one of the earliest areas to be settled outside of Fort Victoria. Fort Victoria was the headquarters for the trading area and would become the capital of the province of British Columbia.
By exploring the different topics, we hope to bring some of Metchosin’s history to you. This site is also a way for the Metchosin’s Schoolhouse Museum to share its collections and publications with a wider audience.
We hope everyone will find something of interest in our site.
