My wife and I visited the sawmill as part of a ride on the historic Alberni Pacific Steam Train. What a great way to spend approximately four hours. The train was great fun itself and once at the mill, we were entertained by a great crew of people intent on making the visit educational and entertaining for young and old alike.
The steam sawmill demonstrations were amazing and give a wonderful look back on the British Columbia forestry heritage. The visiting children who we observed, seem to be having a great experience. There are special efforts made by the staff so the kids have lots of fun. There is food available, old equipment to check out, a little gift shop and many historic site buildings. Don't forget your camera. You'll find many good opportunities for some special shots.
