1. Rockland Cairn Marker
Inscription.

This monument was erected by residents of Rockland, with the support of the City of Victoria, to commemorate the past, celebrate the millennium and look to the future.

Rockland was carved out of the 500 acre Douglas Estate “Fairfield Farm” in the mid 1800ís. The foremost architects of Victoria reflected the image and lifestyle of their day in the grand homes of Rockland.

Residents of Rockland have sought to maintain the heritage character of the neighbourhood for the benefit of all Victorians and of those who visit.

The time capsule, dedicated in the Year 2000, by His Worship Mayor Alan Lowe, will be opened in Year 2100.
 
Erected by Rockland Neighbourhood Residents.
