On August 25, 1996, The Fishermens’ Memorial was unveiled in Lunenburg. It is located on the waterfront between Adams and Knickle and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. The monument shaped as a compass rose, comprises eight three-sided columns at each compass point. Inscribed on these black granite columns are the names of mariners, primarily fishermen from Lunenburg County who lost their lives at sea from 1890 until the present.
This image is one of the fishing vessels etched in the top of a black granite column. The houses are a reflection from across the street. Much sorrow would have been shared in these homes when the fishing boat and crew failed to return home.
