On August 25, 1996, The Fishermens' Memorial was
unveiled in Lunenburg. It is located on the waterfront
between Adams and Knickle and the Fisheries Museum of the
Atlantic. The monument shaped as a compass rose, comprises
eight three-sided columns at each compass point. Inscribed
on these black granite columns are the names of mariners,
primarily fishermen from Lunenburg County who lost their
lives at sea from 1890 until the present.
"Dedicated to the memory of those who have gone down to
the sea in ships and who have never returned and as a
tribute to those who continue to occupy their business in
the great waters."
