Vancouver`s CairnPrint Page Print this page

Cairn commemorates the landing of Captain George Vancouver.

In 1791, Captain George Vancouver, on his way to America, came to the southern shore, and found and named King George`s Sound. He landed and examined the country, but saw nothing of any consequence, and, after a short stay, sailed away to the eastward, intending to follow the coast line, but was prevented by baffling winds.
