Description
Mr. van Horne was the General Manager of the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the late 1870's. This spot, located on Ministers Island, near Saint Andrews, NB was a working farm where he would spend his summers. Winters he spent in Montreal, and received daily rail shipments of the farm's produce - milk and butter, meats of all types, veggies and so on. If you visit remember that the spot can only be reached (and left from) by a sandbar that is well underwater at high tide. Almost got caught once myself..
