About the Shawnigan Lake Historical Society

Mission: Sharing the passion for Shawnigan Lake – past, present and future.
Vision: To connect community and visitors with the Shawnigan Lake Experience.

The Shawnigan Lake Historical Society was incorporated in 1977 as a not for profit and charitable organization. The Society opened the Shawnigan Lake Museum in 1983 in the ‘old’ fire hall in Shawnigan Village. In the early days, the collection was small and Garth Harvey, long time supporter and volunteer stated at the time that, “We are going to rattle around like a pea in a saucepan…and we’re going to have to do some serious collecting.”
Serious collecting, indeed! 35 years later, the museum space is at capacity. This is due to the generosity of people who have donated the amazing artifacts in the collection, including the one-of-a-kind E.J. Hughes collection. This community asset serves the regional area of Shawnigan Lake, with a population of over 8000 people.
