Sawmills! More Than Machines ExhibitUpstairs Gallery Sooke, British Columbia
Heritage — Other
Sawmills: More Than Machines! is an in-depth look at the human and mechanical history of sawmills in the Sooke region. While for many a sawmill is seen as an individual enterprise, the reality is that they have historically been communities of people. This exhibit looks at both the technology of the mills, but also the social role they played. Artifacts, photos, and archives from the museum’s collection will be incorporated to tell the story of how a town formed around mills, skid roads and other points of activity.
