Extension and Cassidy Real Estate

When locals talk about "Extension" they refer to the small village southwest of Chase River, hidden away in a little valley. This was the site of a bustling company coal town at the beginning of the 20th century and the site of famous labour unrest in 1913.

But the real estate board uses the name to refer to a much larger rural area running south and including South Wellington, across the Nanaimo River to Cassidy and the Nanaimo airport.

Many people choose Extension (and South Wellington, and Cassidy) for the quiet lifestyle and the ability to get more land for the price - all within close range of the city. Others are the born'n'raised type who have good roots and great memories in these little communities.

RE/MAX Of Nanaimo

A hundred years ago, residents of Extension might have laughed about the possibility of their town being considered merely a neighbourhood of the rival township of Nanaimo. But when the mines closed, Extension was virtually abandoned by the thousands of workers who had made it a bustling community. Most of the homes were shipped by rail to Ladysmith. (I would do anything for a photo of one of these homes being hauled across the Nanaimo River bridge that burned in the 1980s and is now called "the trestle", a popular swim spot.)

Along bus routes? Yes.
