In the mid 1800’s the Cowichan Indian tribes were one of the largest Indian tribes in British Columbia, and the Roman Catholic missionaries were intent on establishing and gaining a following amongst the local Cowichan Indian communities. One of their earliest priests Father Peter Rondeault, a pioneer Oblate missionary to the Cowichan Indians built this landmark in 1870 with the help of the local Cowichan Indians.
