Factory Bog at Tiddville

The reason I included this item is other Islanders must remember this factory and want to know more about it.

I remember as a youngster traveling on Digby Neck passing by a large factory at Tiddville. Everyone called it the powder plant. The Digby Neck road took a different route then as it passed in front of the factory at the bottom of the hill. When the roads were paved they changed to where it is today. I can’t remember when it closed down , I believe it was in the early fifty’s. the large stack stood for many years.

    I enjoyed your write up on Factory Bog. Did you know that an ancient Indigenous spear point was unearthed at Factory Bog? It was imbedded in a diatomite deposit about 1.2 m deep. Please contact me for more details.

      Mike; Thank you for your responce. I knew the archaeologist had done some digging in the Little River area some time ago. There used to be an indigenous villiage in Little River and there was a villiage at Whale Cove. I believe their was a village just off the bog at the lake next to the Bog. Thanks for the information.
