The Town of View Royal is home to some of the oldest buildings in the capital region. Completed in 1856, the Craigflower Manor site was one of four original farms set up by the Hudson's Bay Company as part of their obligations in settling Vancouver Island. There was also a saw mill, flour mill, blacksmith's shop, a brick kiln, slaughterhouse and a general store, as well as twenty other dwellings, and the Craigflower Schoolhouse (c. 1855). Both sites are open for public tours.
As Victoria grew in population, people developed seasonal cottages along the Town's shoreline to serve as "get-aways". Among the heritage buildings in View Royal are two historic "road houses" or pubs, the Four Mile House and the Six Mile Public House located on Island Highway.
