McLean Mill Historic Park

Welcome to the McLean Mill National Historic Site & Park!

The McLean Mill National Historic Site is a former sawmill and logging operation located in the Alberni Valley of Vancouver Island, British Columbia’s westcoast. McLean Mill was designated a national historic site of Canada in 1989 to commemorate its collection of extant resources related to logging, sawmilling, transportation and labour, and, its close association to significant aspects of the forest industry.

The McLean Mill National Historic Park’s Visitor and Interpretative Centre offers [self-]guided tours educating about the rich heritage of the site as well as it serves as a beautiful venue amidst the impressive scenery of Canada’s westcoast temperate rainforest that can be turned into a rustic yet beautifully natural wedding setting or provide a peaceful space for private events or corporate functions.

We welcome you to take a walk through the Historic Village and to observe the Heritage Houses, Steam Equipment and Sawmill in a self-guided tour anytime between dawn and dusk. Maps are available at the Administration Building.

Please be courteous to others and keep your distance and respect others doing so –so that everybody can enjoy #safespaces and a walk in nature during these difficult times.

Pets are welcome, please pick up after them and, at all times, keep them on lead.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns:
