Clan MacInnes Cairn in Antigonish Nova Scotia

Cairn Park at the west end of Main Street in Antigonish, Nova Scotia is dedicated to the Pioneer Clan families that began settling in Eastern Nova Scotia in the late 18th Century. Each Clan is represented by a Cairn. A Cairn is a placement of stones or a single large stone that represents a specific event, people or geographic boundary.

A cairn is a stack or mound of rocks that denotes a special marker. This cairn is a Clan MacInnes Marker made of rocks donated by Clan MacInnes descendants. Each family has a story behind their stone and family which are listed below.

The cairn was dedicated July 12 2013 in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.

These rocks are on the Clan MacInnes face.
Later the rocks will be identified with the people who donated them.

These rocks are on the Clan MacInnis face. This is the predominate spelling in Antigonish, but other areas use McInnis.

This back area will have a brass plate with the names of people who have donated rocks and money for the cairn.
