The Kaatza Station Museum & Archives is housed in a 1913 E&N railway station. We collect, preserve and interpret the history of the Cowichan Lake area through displays, photographs, and archives. Our history includes logging, lumbering, railroading, mining and pioneer life. Our outdoor railway displays include a 1918 caboose, a 1927 Shay locomotive, a 1929 Plymouth diesel locomotive and a speeder trailer. We also house the IWA/Wilmer Gold collection of photographs and documents.
