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.
