Celebrating the Contribution of St. Martins & Area to Confederation.
During the Golden Age of Sail, over 500 St. Martins-built ships sailed around the
world for decades bringing prosperity and power to New Brunswick. Now, 147 years
later, a beautifully restored piece of marine art history from that era has been
brought back home to St. Martins.
The Quaco Museum is celebrating Canada 150 with the unveiling of our new exhibit
showcasing the restored figurehead from the St. Martins-built ship The Prince
Victor. The Quaco Historical & Library Society is honoured to have been
instrumental in bringing this unique piece of marine art history back to the Province
of New Brunswick, and to have it on exhibit at the Quaco Museum in St. Martins.
It is a timely reminder of the values lived out by St. Martins’ people, people of the
Confederation generation, values such as tenacity, ingenuity, pride of place, self
confidence, vision and especially hard work and hope.
