Chemainus condensed its path through history with the magic of murals painted by world famous artists on the walls of the charming boutiques and shops throughout the community. Mining, Fishing and Forestry were the original industries that provided work to many Chinese who worked, struggling to move huge lumber planks to the ships in the late 1800's.
