Historical Building sights in Nanaimo
- Sort by:
Undergoing a renovation at the time of our visit, this waterfront wooden tower was built as a fortification by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1853 and moved to this spot in 1974. A brief but charming ceremony sees one of its cannons fired for tourists at noon – the polystyrene 'cannonball' can still shake a few ribs. Nearby is the site of the weekly Nanaimo Downtown Farmers Market.
