Peggy Of The Cove, Glen Margaret

(65+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Peggy of the Cove was the title given to the only legendary survivor of a shipwreck off the rugged coast of Nova Scotia near the small fishing village now known as Peggy's Cove. She was a little girl with amnesia from the wreck. Her new parents called her Peggy. Folks around St. Margaret's Bay would say, "Let's go see Peggy of the Cove," and eventually they named their village after her, Peggy's Cove.

Now, Ivan Fraser is bringing her story to life through BOOKS, DOLLS, PAINTINGS, PRINTS, SONG and more at the the PEGGY OF THE COVE website and through his childhood home MUSEUM, where in his story, Peggy spent time with his grandmother, Janet.

Peggy's story has fired imaginations the world over and Peggy of the Cove is attracting a growing number of fans.

NOTE: FREE ADMISSION & MUSEUM IS ALWAYS CLOSED ON SATURDAY.

  • Ivan is one of the best artist I've seen in the area and is very horrible with everyone all the best from Vito
  • Lots of memorabilia and an interesting staff. Enjoyed all the pictures and surroundings.
  • Peggy of the Cove is a nice stop on your way through this part of Nova Scotia. The owner is very dedicated to his business and is quite friendly to boot. It sounds like he has some good ideas for the location, and I would like to see it again in a few years to see what he has done.
