OUT OF THE FOG: Guysborough Triathlon participants are shrouded in fog as they listen to instructions outside the Jost Building on Sunday morning.

Unveiling history

Christ Church preserves cemetery history


By Lois Ann Dort


GUYSBOROUGH – The village of Guysborough has a long and storied past, from the succession of early French forts built on Fort Point in the 1600s to the everyday artifacts of rural life found at the Old Court House Museum. More of that past was unveiled at the Christ Church cemetery last Saturday when three panels inscribed with over 700 names of those interred within were unveiled.


The sun-drenched day brought out approximately 80 local residents and visitors to the event led by Rev. Darroch Fagan. Opening speeches were given inside Christ Church beginning with remarks from Rev. Fagan. β€œIn the earliest days of the settlement of Guysborough this was a community burying ground. Members of all denominations, races, creeds were interred here. It is an opportunity for us as a community to remember and to celebrate.”
