SS Atlantic Society / Join Us
In 1998 citizens of Terence Bay and Lower Prospect established the SS Atlantic
Heritage Park Society, a non-profit organization run by a board of local residents. The Society's intentions were to preserve the resting place of 277 victims of the sinking of the SS Atlantic
in 1873. However, over the years, the Society's successes far surpassed their initial intentions. Near the mass burial site in Terence Bay, there is now a boardwalk that wraps around the coastline, and a gazebo. The area around the old memorial to the victims has been landscaped and interpretive panels have been installed. An Interpretation Centre was completed in 2002 containing a small museum of artifacts from the SS Atlantic
, interpretive panels and a craft shop.
