Britannia Heritage Shipyards, Richmond

The historic shipyards were originally built about 1889 as a cannery. Following a collapse in salmon prices following World War I, the cannery was converted to a shipyard. The shipyard was active until 1979.

 

The shipyards are now a recognized National Historic Site and a city park. Most of the buildings are open to tours during the day.
