Joe's Point

Joe's Point: In the book, The Diverting History of a Loyalist Town, by Grace Helen Mowat, we find on page 12, 

"After the glacier came the Indians, a peaceable tribe of Micmacs. They had their headquarters at Joe's Point and camped about, wherever the games was plentiful."

It consisted of a blockhouse and 2 gun battery.


An etching of Under Joe's Point, St. Andrews, NB, is found on the site by Shelia Washburn, which she referenced as "Etchings for Algonquin Resort when it opened 111 years ago. (From the Archives of Art MacKay) 1889 Etchings of Passamaquoddy Area - Taken from the St. Andrews Land Company's prospectus" Also, a second etching St. Andrews and Passamaquoddy from Joe's Point. This last one would make it appear that Joe's Point is to the west of St. Andrews.
