-- Surveyor's Post of D.L. 303 and 304
Scales, a Royal Engineer, applied for his 150 acres military grant on
crown land lying between Trail Bay and Porpoise Bay in 1869 and his land
grant to District Lot 303 on Trail Bay was recorded in that year. His
purchase of D.L. 304 was recorded in 1975; he became the first white landowner
in the Sechelt area. This picture shows the survey blaze made by surveyor
William S. Jemmett in 1875.
