The Eastern Shore and Northern Nova Scotia Sights

Fodor's Review

A 34-meter (110-foot) fully rigged replica of the Hector is moored here, and you can sometimes see maintenance work in progress. The handsome post-and-beam interpretive center recounts the story of the first hardy pioneers (33 families plus 25 unmarried men) who arrived aboard the original vessel in 1773, and the flood of Scots who followed them. The site also has working blacksmith, rigger, and carpentry shops.
