The first two are historic waterfront cottages a few miles away, at Tidnish Dock. These are two of the most interesting historic and well equipped seaside cottages in the area. These two cottages were originally used by Henry Ketchum as he endeavoured to complete a railroad to transport fully loaded sailing ships from the Northumberland Strait to the Bay of Fundy. It was North America’s largest Civil Engineering project of the 1800′s. The Ship Railway.
