Participating in #HISTORICPLACESDAYS

Surrounded by coastal landscapes, tour through Fort Rodd Hill, a 19th-century west coast artillery fortress on active duty from 1895 to 1956, then step inside Fisgard Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse on Canada’s west coast. Be touched by the personal stories of soldiers and lighthouse keepers.

Notes from "Culinary Delights – Historic Places Days 2024"

Soldiers and civilians all experienced changes to their diet during World War Two. While soldiers were given hearty military food, civilians could still eat whatever they wanted, but were limited by “rationing”. Not being able to get certain ingredients made some recipes hard to make but the folks at Fort Rodd Hill have got you covered! Drop by to try some of their Heritage Ice Cream. Which flavours will you choose: Chocolate Ration Cake, Apple Cider Oatmeal, or Eat Your Invasive Blackberries?
