Take some time to visit Stella Maris Rectory and its historic cemetery. Although the current building dates to 1968, the history of this small Roman Catholic church goes as far back as the early 18th century, when subjects of King Louis XIV settled on Cape Breton Island. Notice the figure of St. Francis surrounded by colorful flowers and the large church bell on the front lawn, which once stood on the original bell tower.
