Frank & Helen Bagley and The Bagley Store


Dan and Janis Sawatzky of Chemainus, B.C.


April 26, 1997


5653 Historic Plaza
Homesteaders Frank and Helen Bagley arrived with their three sons on Thanksgiving Day 1927. They had filed on a 160-acre homestead, setting up house in an 18-foot by 18-foot garage, which soon became the town's first general store when local miners and homesteaders began asking them to lend out or pick up supplies. The Plaza, which grew up around Bagley's Market, soon became the social center of the community - offering food and sundries, gas station, post office, notary service, library, and the first public telephone switchboard.
