Bidding a sad farewell to our Wood Islands Fishing Village
The little fishing village situated near the Wood Islands Lighthouse has been a delight for locals and visitors alike. It was a labour of love by locals and constructed with local materials. Built in the 60’s by local trades people, with logs hauled out by horses from local woodlots, it has held a place that was near and dear to many hearts. It portrayed not only a peek into history to educate but also represented a commitment by community to keep history alive.
Time and weather have had their effect though, and recently the Province deemed it unsafe and scheduled removal.
But have no fear! While we are horribly saddened to see this local icon disappear from our shore, we are hard at work on a solution to replace it, so that we can continue to pay homage to our local history. With love in our hearts and a tip of the hat to history, we hope to one day have a safe, new fishing village on our shore for all to enjoy once again.
