Our Heritage

The Mary Crowley monument is the first public monument in honour of a Canadian-born female. It was erected in 1870 following a unanimous vote of the Nova Scotia Legislature. "Mary E. Crowley lies beneath this sod, a victim to fraternal love, having rescued a younger brother and sister from the flames of her parents' dwelling, she exclaimed, 'Mother, all is over with me now, but I have saved my brother and sister.' She expired 24 hours after Oct. 15, 1869, aged 12 years. Greater love no man hath known. R.I.P."
Also buried here is seven year old Catherine Crowley. Catherine was the younger sister that Mary got out of the burning house but who also expired later the same day as Mary.
Augustine (Gus) Crowley, the brother that Mary saved, grew to the old age of ninety-three after siring fifteen children.
