"Emily Carr House is on the must-see list of Victoria's attractions. Centrally located only four blocks from the Inner Harbour and the Provincial Legislature, the house offers its visitors a chance to gain an insight into Canada's first -- and best known -- independent artist and writer.
Emily was born here in 1871, a scant six months after British Columbia moved from British colonial status to becoming a province of the world's newest nation. She used her brushes and pens to proclaim her pride in this part of Canada for the rest of her life.
In the restored rooms of the house, built in 1864, you'll enter into the same Victorian ambiance the Carr family would have known in the 1870's, and upstairs are several of their actual possessions, including some of Emily's pottery and sculpture."
