The only monument to commemorate the landing of the
Prince Henry Sinclair Expedition in 1398
to Nova Scotia, Canada was erected November
17, 1996 by the Prince Henry Sinclair Society of North America, Inc.
It is a fifteen-ton granite boulder with a black granite narrative
plaque located at Halfway Cove on Rt. 16 in Guysborough County, Nova
Scotia, above the original landing site.
The monument is in a scenic
pinic area with interpretive panels and offers a panoramic view of
The replica viking ship that you refered to as a
monument is actually a memorial erected by Clan Sinclair and has
nothing to do with the Prince Henry Sinclair Society.
