The Alfred Saker Monument
The Alfred Saker Monument
This monument was erected next to the Victoria (Limbe) Divisional Office in 1958 on the occasion of the Victoria centenary celebrations. It was raised as a homage Alfred Saker who founded Victoria in 1858 and named it after the then reigning Queen of England.
The monument is a significant representation of the history of one of the most romantic cities in the country, Limbe. Its location at Down Beach forms an ideal site as the ocean is just a stone’s throw away, and it thus provides a breathtaking view of the waves and a breezy environment for visitors.
The inscription on that monument reads: "Alfred Saker, Missionary to Africa, Who landed, founded and named the Township VICTORIA. This tablet is erected in memory of his devoted work to mark the Centenary of Victoria, 1858-1958."
Walking down the memory lane is always an amazing experience, visit and know what it feels like!
