Pictou, Nova Scotia
The town of Pictou is located on the beautiful Northumberland Shore of Nova Scotia and is known as the "Birthplace of New Scotland". The first Scottish immigrants disembarked here in 1773 from the ship Hector. You can explore the Hector Heritage Quay and board the full-sized Ship Hector replica. The Hector Heritage Quay offers unique insight into the journey of early Scots settlers to Nova Scotia, and their arrival in Pictou.

There was a public pillory at the foot of Market Square in which, it has been claimed, a man was confined for three hours for kissing his wife on a Sunday. Today, a replica of the pillory stands at the foot of Hector Square.

Shipbuilding was a major business in Pictou during the 1800's. In 1867 some 40 ships were registered as built in Pictou.

Look for the Water Street Studios building. Dating from 1825, it is a good example of Scottish stone houses. From the time it was built, the building has served as both storefront and residence. It housed the Sheriff's offices from the 1920's to the 1960's.

Visit the Fishing Museum, built as a tribute to the fishing heritage of the Northumberland Strait area. The Museum looks at the fishing industry and ships of the strait from 1800s to the present.
