Built in 1889 it is the oldest cannery building on the Fraser River. In about 1918 the building was converted to a ship yard and repair facility for the ABC Packing Company. The Britannia Shipyard Museum features displays about Steveston ship building and fishing. Often wooden boats are being repaired using traditional boat building skills
