SS Atlantic Heritage Park Society, Terence Bay

The S.S. Atlantic Heritage Park was developed by volunteers in order to restore the two burial sites and monuments and also to preserve the history of the S.S. Atlantic shipwreck. The monument in the park was erected in 1915 by the owner of the White Star Line in order to commemorate the 277 unidentified victims that were buried in there.

Inside the Interpretation Centre building there is a museum and craft shop. The museum holds many artifacts recovered from the S.S. Atlantic shipwreck as well as artifacts related to the history of Terence Bay and the Nova Scotia tartan. The craft shop features local craft makers from all around Nova Scotia and serves refreshments as well as snacks.
