"Allen Casey Wells moved to Chilliwack in 1866 and established what would become one of the most important dairy farms in the province... He established the first creamery and cheese factory in Chilliwack. In addition to his farm duties, he acted as the local dentist, a Justice of the Peace and township reeve... Despite efforts to have Edenbank declared a Heritage Site, it was eventually sold and subdivided – the barn torn down before it collapsed." Greg Knill - The Chilliwack Progress, 2017.
