Heritage Value Statement
Built in 1929, William Bell operated the Central Dairy from this building throughout the 1930s and 40s. The building is a good example of the type of simple, vernacular style of commercial building that was constructed during the interwar period in Nanaimo. Like many buildings of this era, the lower floor was a service and work area while the second floor provided a residence for the original owner. Although the building has been renovated over the years, its essential form remains intact.

The Central Dairy building is an integral part of a significant grouping of historic commercial buildings on this street.
