The Mill Bay/Malahat Historical Society’s Signs of Places Past project took another step forward Aug. 12 with the dedication of three new signs installed at Rusticana Coffee.

Business owners Ron Aichelberger and Cyndi Price have been working hard to create a tasteful community gathering place that honours the past.

A banner shows a late 1800s family on a log-strewn shore beside the old sawmill the village is named after, an aluminum sign shows an early 1920s roadster on the Malahat drive and a larger sign celebrates a post-war business formerly on the Rusticana site.
