Hog Island Exhibit

July 9, 2016 - September 5, 2016

Opening Saturday, 9 July, there will be a small exhibit at the O’Dell House Museum featuring the history of Hog Island, Annapolis Royal, in conjunction with the House and Gardens Tour sponsored by the Historic Gardens. This region, encompassing the new Fortier Mills Subdivision, the area of the Fire Hall and the Tidal Power Station, has a long and interesting history, stretching back to the early 18th century. The site of early executions in the town, it also witnessed the 19thand 20th centuries attempts at industrialization, including the construction of sailing ships and the manufacture of such things as cast iron stoves, skis and wooden toys.

In the 20th century, it has been the location of links to Granville Ferry, first by bridge and then by causeway, which in the 1980s became the site of North America’s first tidal power plant. The exhibit will run until Labour Day.
