Ouch! As a small tourist town you would think the Town of Pictou would put a little bit of money into its biggest attraction. The Ship Hector is in desperate need of repair and paint. Really interesting history.

You can go on board this recreation and see how people traveled to Nova Scotia from Scotland. Fascinating.

The Hector replica is well worth a visit for anyone interested in history of Nova Scotia and of our Scottish ancestors.
