Pronouced "Fin Slew", this is waterfront settlement in Richmond. Situated at Finn and 4 Road, this little fishing community was threatened with tear down about a year ago. The residents are still negotiating with the courts over their claims on the property. The Finnish families have lived on these boat/stilt houses on an inlet coming in from the Fraser River ever since 1905. Originally their ancestors settled on Lulu Island (1890's) and Woodward Slough, but Woodward Slough was dammed. (1905) Around 50 people still live on these old wooden houses, some of them over a century old!
