McLean Mill, national historic site. [Historic Sites Photography]

April 30, 2014  •  2 Comments

Port Alberni has been qualified the Worst Place To Live in Canada by the so serious magazine Forbes ! Well, based on their studies and criteria, yes, perhaps they are right BUT ..... there is a few gems in this town that they have no clue about !!

 

McLean Mill is one of them.

I'm only in the valley for a year, and up to November, I was only seeing it like a beautiful place to visit as a tourist. That was until I met Darren ! 

He is passionate with this place and granted me the access of the mill to take pictures from the inside. We've spent a few hours over there, in this sunny and cold weather ( it was an "Alberta like" day : sun and cold !!). 

The purpose of our visit was to follow one special log that was going to Ucluelet to be used on a new project : a Community Hall for the Native community. 

I have loved this time spent there, it was very informative as Neil took the time to answer my questions and all the crew was amazing !

 

Here are a few images, and a video I have put together :
