HIGGINS' CABIN MUSEUM
The Higgins cabin is a permanent two-room display. Upon entering, visitors can view the collection of logger’s tools commonly used on Bowen Island, from an early wood-framed bow saw to a 1950s chainsaw.
Looking into the bedroom, visitors can see how Bert Higgins might have lived as a logger in 1948. The refrigerator and cook stove are both powered by kerosene, as was common before electricity came into general use on Bowen.
