Statement of Significance

Description of Historic Place

The Dairy building is a small hip-roofed outbuilding located near the Caleb Pike House at Caleb Pike Heritage Park, 1589 Millstream Road in the District of Highlands, British Columbia. The historic place includes the building on its footprint.

Heritage Value

The Dairy building is valued for its link to community history. It was an outbuilding at the Pike family homestead, and is one of two surviving original structures now part of the Caleb Pike Heritage Park. Although it is presently used as a kitchen for the park, it has become known as the "dairy" since it was likely used as a place to process the farm's milk. Built sometime between 1883 and 1900, it is constructed of squared logs and light pole rafters. It currently has a cedar shake roof.
