Founder of Antigonish, Timothy Hierlihy, 1784 arrival in Antigonish: August, 1984 re-enactment





These are just some of the photos taken by Archie MacLellan for the 200th anniversary of the landing at Town Point of the founder of Antigonish,  Colonel Timothy Hierlihy.  If you find yourself in these photos, please identify yourself by responding in the comment box.  You will see Mayor Colin Chisholm, Bishop William Power, Eileen Cameron Henry, Rev. Ralph Weber, J. K. MacDonald, Ray MacLean, Angus MacQuarrie.  Plans are underway for the first Heritage Walk for Health at the Anglican Church memorial site for Timothy Hierlihy and his company of Loyalist soldiers and their families.   We welcome expressions of interest in this first Heritage Walk possibly as early as this fall [please respond in the comment box].  And if you were present at the 1984 re-enactment and still have period costumes or other props from that event, we want to hear from you.clergy milling about Mayor Eileen JK TH Angus MacQ Ray MacL Mayor JK TH memorial stone at 1st site Ray MacLean helping TH up bank TH and party TH with musket webber power Clan Chattan TH on wharf
