Moving toward the mouth of the Fraser River we came upon Finn Slough. Finn Slough was established in the 1880’s by Finnish immigrant fishers. What remains now are a collection of 18 houses renovated from net mending sheds, boat houses and original houses. Some of the houses are floating and others are on pilings. Because the land is below the high tide line these houses are without official status or land tenure. Attempts have been made recently to obtain Crown Leases to make these houses ‘legal’ and the Finn Slough Heritage and Wetland Society has been formed to try to preserve the unique atmosphere of the settlement.
