Feds invest in Port Alberni’s McLean Mill

Christmas has come early for Port Alberni’s McLean Mill national historic site.

According to a press release, the mill is receiving $48,000 for conservation work from the Parks Canada’s National Historic Sites Cost-Sharing Program. Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney made the announcement at the mill Saturday.

“It is exciting to be able to invest in a site that celebrates such an important part of Port Alberni and British Columbia’s history,” said Lunney. “By investing in its rehabilitation, we are also helping to strengthen local tourism.”
