We are  embarking upon a major restoration project of the Ship Hector for the 250th anniversary of the arrival of the ship in Pictou, Nova Scotia in 1773.  We will be restoring the Hector to a fully rigged tall ship which will be a major tourist draw for the province of Nova Scotia.  

The Ship Hector Society is a volunteer run organization and relies on admissions and fundraising to operate the Hector Heritage Quay and the Ship Hector.
