This publication highlights the past and potential uses of stone as a structural material and also as a culturally valuable and lasting resource. Most of Victoria’s buildings and monuments that have used natural stone in their construction can be found within four to six city blocks of Victoria’s Inner Harbour. While a few buildings outside of this area deserve mention, much of the diversity of Victoria’s architecture and the character of the distinctive building materials can be appreciated without walking any great distance.
