George Fraser (1854-1944)

The George Fraser Memorial is a monument located in Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. It is dedicated to the memory of George Fraser, a prominent businessman, philanthropist, and politician who played a significant role in the development of Victoria in the early 20th century.

Fraser was born in Scotland in 1884 and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1893. He settled in Victoria in 1908 and quickly established himself as a successful businessman, primarily in the real estate and insurance industries. He also became involved in local politics, serving as a city alderman and later as mayor of Victoria from 1930 to 1932.

The George Fraser Memorial was erected in 1946, two years after Fraser's death. It is a large, granite column topped with a bronze statue of Fraser himself, dressed in a business suit and holding a scroll. The column is inscribed with the words "George Henry Barnard Fraser 1884-1944," and the base features a plaque with a brief biography of Fraser's life and accomplishments.

The monument is located in a prominent spot in Beacon Hill Park, near the southeastern edge of the park's main lawn. It is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, and it serves as a reminder of the important contributions that George Fraser made to the development of Victoria and the surrounding area.
