LeNoir Forge Museum

708 Veterans Memorial Drive

902-226-9364



Come visit one of the oldest stone
buildings on Cape Breton Island. “The Forge,” built between 1780 and 1800, was an important enterprise on Isle Madame. Step back to a time
when shipbuilding flourished and local captains sailed all over the globe.
Experience a working forge, and peruse a collection of tools and artifacts that
tell some of the stories of Isle Madame.

 

The LeNoir Forge Museum is part of the
LeNoir Landing site, which also houses a genealogy centre, community archives,
a boat barn containing displays and information on our seafaring past, a gift
shop, and other shanties used for exhibits. Chat with our bilingual interpreters
and take part in on-site programs and activities.
