  • 16.80 kilometer(s) from Butchart Gardens, In 1904, Robert Pim Butchart, a pioneer in the thriving North American cement industry, developed a quarry and built a cement plant at Tod Inlet (on Vancouver Island) to satisfy Portland cement demand from San Francisco to Victoria. Jennie Butchart became the company’s chemist. As Mr. Butchart exhausted limestone deposits, his enterprising wife Jennie made plans to create something of beauty in the exhausted pit. Little by little, the quarry blossomed into the spectacular Sunken Garden. The renown of Mrs. Butchart’s gardening quickly spread. By the 1920s more than fifty thousand people visited her garden each year. Their house grew into a comfortable, luxurious showplace, with a bowling alley, paneled billiard room and a wonder of its age, a self-playing Aeolian pipe organ. Today, it houses the Dining Room Restaurant, offices, and rooms still used for family entertaining. In 2004, The Gardens was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.

What Dunsmuir envisioned was a working farm with a dairy, piggery, stables, grazing and hunting lands, and at the centre of it all, a grand home for his wife to entertain Victoria’s high society and for James to enjoy the life of a country gentleman. On May 1st, 1910 the Dunsmuirs officially moved in to Hatley Castle, then the largest private residence on the West Coast.
