Miss Moore built what was to be called Kennedy Lodge in the late 1930s to function as an activity centre for the girls. Beach logs and cement were used as vertical supports. It had a big river rock fireplace at one end and an edge-grain fir floor. The building sat on posts and rocks – making it possible for kids to “bounce” the room. The total cost was $50,000.
The building was named Kennedy Lodge in honour of Qualicum Beach United Church Minister, Harold Kennedy who with his wife Catherine, arrived at Moorecroft in 1968. Harold passed away in 1971, but Catherine carried on as caretaker until her retirement in 1988.
