COLLEGE GRANT, Antigonish County

A settlement S. W. of Antigonish.

Named because of a large grant of land to the Governors, President and Fellows of Kings
College at Windsor.

Peter Stewart was teaching thirty-four pupils named Sears, Taylor, McNaughton and
Hanophen in this scattered farming settlement in 1848.  Then for many years it had no
school, but in 1886 it was reorganized and a school opened for the children in the
district between the rear of Lochaber Lake and East River St. Mary's.  The school
was closed in 1956.
 
 

COLLEGE LAKE, Antigonish County

A beautiful lake south west of Antigonish, named thus because a large grant of land
on the shores of the lake was given to the Governors, President and Fellows of Kings
College at Windsor in 1813.
