In 1982, the idea for a downtown revitalization project involving large historical murals was conceived. What started with 5 murals showing the history of the North Cowichan area is now a collection of 50 large murals depicting logging, the railroad, and the various groups of settlers who established the community. In 1983, the town of 4,000 inhabitants won the New York Downtown Revitalization Award. Yesterday, my sister and I travelled through the streets learning more about the area's history.

The pace of small town life soothes me and I feel that I can return home to better deal with some of the pressures of my daily life.
