Survey Plan of Indian Point Burial Grounds 1786

These are  aerial photos of Indian Point 2001. I traced the 1786 map below and over laid it to show exactly where the Ancient Native Indian burial grounds are.

This is a Survey Plan of Indian Point 1786. Document is at the Public Archives, Halifax ,Nova Scotia.

P.A.N.S. RG-20, Series"C" Vol 90A, #48

Note: Indian Burying Ground at the tip of the Point,marked by the Cartographer.

Indian Point Burying Grounds destruction continues

Construction of a new wharf on the Indian Point burying grounds.  Civic # 350 Indian Point Rd. Access has now been blocked off along the shoreline. Peter J Francis ,Clause 32 in the standard wharf permit states "Should the wharf or boat  ramp impede access to or movement along the shore, you must provide alternate access above the OHWM" I hope the new owners realize they have to construct a safe and secure access.
The former owner of this residence John Bourinot Senior. House was built in 2006-07 By Ramond Hiltz. House was sold to Charles A. Giffin in 2012.
