Residential Remains: A Walking Tour of Rock Bay

Victoria’s Rock Bay neighbourhood is probably best known for the industry that dominates its streets. But Rock Bay was not always waste transfer sites and gravel piles - until the late 1950s it was also a residential neighbourhood. An area for semi-rural and upper class estates during the 1860s, the area became a middle-class and working-class neighbourhood in later years. Very few of the early houses, with the exception of Point Ellice House, survive today - but we can see evidence of these residences in the ornamental trees that line the streets. Join Dr. Patrick Dunae and Point Ellice House Museum and Gardens for a walking tour of Rock Bay. Along the way we will discuss the history of Rock Bay and locate heritage buildings still standing, as well as those that vanished long ago. After the tour, we will gather at Moon Under Water Pub to continue the conversation!
