Port Windsor has unveiled the name of its new outdoor marine museum –
in celebration of International Maritime Day.
The Town Crier called the children of General Brock Public School and the community itself to gather at this new destination for the official opening. Elders from the Walpole first Nation performed a smudging ceremony to purify the space and recognize the historic connection to this area by several first nations. Literally anchored by an anchor, the new outdoor space is adjacent to the offices of Port Windsor in Old Sandwich Towne, and tells the story of marine trade and commerce for over 10,000 years at this very location.
