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!
