Historic Smoke Sheds of Seal Cove-Grand Manan Island New Brunswick Canada

The village of Seal Cove is a National Historic Site of Canada. It consists of approximately 54 wooden buildings that were originally smoked herring stands or sheds. They are picturesque, sadly in various stages of disrepair, and a fundamentally important part of the Island’s history and heritage. The Village was established around 1870, and by the early 1880s, Grand Manan became the world’s largest supplier of smoked herring.
