The Charles Fenerty Monument
Located at: 2151 Hwy 1, Sackville Dr., Upper Sackville, NS, Canada, B4E-3C7
44.80546, -63.749923
Note: Hwy 1 is also referred to as the Old Windsor Hwy. This was called the Windsor Road back during Fenerty's time. The monument is located on the property where Charles Fenerty used to live (his father's farm). This is the third monument erected. The first was a plaque which was placed on the same birch tree that inspired his poem Betula Nigra. It was placed on the site of the old Squire Hamilton farm in 1926 by the Nova Scotia Historical Society. The tree later fell down due to a storm. The second monument was erected on 28th October 1955. It was made of brick which housed the same plaque (see articles and photos). This new monument was placed on the original base of the 1955 monument (everything else is new).
