The North Shore News has reported that the little blue cabin is on the move, it was the last of the old squatters’ cabins at Cates Park.  Nancy Kirkpatrick, Director of North Vancouver Museum and Archives put together a history of the cabin and has given us permission to include it on our Stories page.
