Step back in time to the early 1900s and relive life at Bamberton, one of the most important industrial sites in BC's history.
Bambertonís Mystery History
This site traces the history of the cement industry at Bamberton, located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. An industry that changed and shaped the skyline of BC's cities, the shoreline of its harbours, and even the flow of its rivers with the millions of tons of cement that poured forth from the Bamberton plant. It illustrates the strong role the company played in the lives of the thousands of workers and their families who lived in the village over the years. People whose lives were shaped by the fortunes of the cement industry from 1904 to 1982.
Using photos, maps, actual memories and informative text we hope to acquaint the viewer with the compelling story of Bamberton, a community that went from "Dust to Bust".
