This site is dedicated to our forebears who settled in this part of Vancouver Island.
Metchosin was one of the earliest areas to be settled outside of Fort Victoria. This settlement occurred because of the need to supply food to the resident Hudson Bay Co. population at the Fort.
Since 1843, of course, everything has changed. Fort Victoria was demolished in 1864 and the city which grew up around the fort eventually became capital of the Province of British Columbia.
The Society has two museums. The Pioneer Museum is open year- round on Sundays from 11:00 am – 2 pm. The Schoolhouse Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays, April to October.
The Metchosin Schoolhouse Museum recently closed for renovations, but reopened on September 25, 2022.
