Holland Point
Holland Point is a promontory located between Ogden Point and Finlayson Point on southern Vancouver Island. According to Scott, HBC employee George Holland is believed to be the source of the feature's name. In 1839, Holland served as a school teacher at Fort Vancouver and, in 1844, was postmaster at Fort Langley. Part of the HBC's Beckley Farm at one point resided on Holland Point.1
