Description
Joggins is known for its fossil fields and 30-metre-high (100-ft.) cliffs where fossilized trees and plants are visible. Coal may have been mined in the area as early as 1650. Commercial mining began in 1854 with construction of a loading wharf and a narrow-gauge railway. The Joggins Mine closed in 1927, and the once thriving town would never recover from a catastrophic fire a year later.
