Lecture highlights cemetery’s history

Heritage series kicks off next Wednesday

Oak Bay Heritage is kicking off its fall lecture series with a presentation on the community’s historic Chinese cemetery.

Local historian John Adams, founding president of Victoria’s Old Cemeteries Society, will share stories and photographs of the burial ground, which was established in 1906 at Harling Point.

Future lectures will focus on early transportation in Oak Bay, as well as the history of Oak Bay United Church.

The lecture on the Chinese cemetery takes place next Wednesday (Sept. 21) at 7 p.m., at Windsor Park Pavilion.
