The Legislative Buildings for the Colony of Vancouver Island were built on these grounds in 1859. Nicknamed "The Birdcages" because of their quaint style, they were replaced in 1894-97 by the present buildings. The original Legislative Hall, meeting place of the first House of Assembly west of the Great Lakes, was preserved until 1957 when it was destroyed by fire.
