The Pier

The wooden pier was built because saw local mills had been offered business from the Atlantic Seaboard once the Panama Canal was opened. Construction began in 1914. The finished pier was 628 feet in length, with a small boat landing at the outer end. The following year, a further 985 feet was added to the existing pier. In 1953, a breakwater was constructed to protect the pier and the boats harboured there. When the pier had finally deteriorated to an unsafe condition in 1976, the community formed a Save-the-Pier committee. In April 1982, the pier and White Rock were declared heritage sites.
