Description From Owner:
  • After Don Pedro de Alberni, who commanded the tiny military force that Lieutenant Francisco Eliza carried with him when he sailed from Mexico in 1790 to establish a Spanish base at Nootka.
  • Alberni was the first agriculturalist in the area, successfully growing vegetables in a garden at Nootka.
  • In 1793 the little fort here was garrisoned by two corporals and eighteen soldiers detached from Alberni's company, but Alberni himself had returned to Mexico.
  • …from G.P.V. Akrigg and Helen B. Akrigg British Columbia Place Names 3rd Edition 1997
