Jackson Bay

JACKSON BAY, 65 km northwest of CAMPBELL RIVER, is a northerly arm of Topaze Harbour between KNIGHT and Loughborough inlets. The area was the site of at least one KWAKWAKA'WAKW village. Homesteaders arrived in the 1910s and a settlement formed around a store and boat landing that lasted into the 1950s. LOGGING and FISHING were the main employment; fruit, vegetables, poultry (see AGRICULTURE), and cattle (see CATTLE INDUSTRY) were raised and sold to local logging camps.
