 On September 15th, 1773, the Hector sailed into Pictou harbour. Aboard were 189 Scottish  immigrants who had boarded the ship in Loch Broom more than two months before in search of a better life in the new world.

The Hector Heritage Quay features three stories of displays of information about the passengers the ship and its voyage to the new world, a short documentary, rigging and carving shop, carpentry shop, as well as  a full scale replica of the ship which was constructed on site.
