The Tantramar Dykelands: A Strategic Location

An engraving, map and artifact portrayed together in one image to illustrate the theme of this module, a strategic location.

As the 19th century began, the Tantramar dykelands represented the richest agricultural lands of the Maritimes. The wagons, sleighs and carriages needed to grow this rural economy spawned one of Canada's longest operating pre-industrial factories.
