DescriptionQuaco, as St. Martins was first known, was once one of the most prosperous shipbuilding centers in eastern Canada; more than 500 ships were built at a dozen family boatyards from the late 18th to late 19th centuries. This legacy left its imprint on the local architecture; ship's carpenters embellished homes with elaborate architectural details.
Augmenting the town's historic houses are a lighthouse and twin covered bridges. Add the rugged coastal setting, and it's easy to see why St. Martins is popular with photographers and artists.
