This small rectangle of land was part of a 738 acre tract originally granted to Robert Dickson Esq. and Jesse Converse on 8 May 1789. The original land grant encompassed all of present day Hopewell Cape. Later, after being acquired by the Municipality of Albert County, this lot was leased to Samuel Stewart on 22 January 1885 with a 999 year term. Subsequently it was held by the Reid Family of Hopewell Cape for about 100 years: first by Elmo Reid, then William "Bill" Reid and finally by Annabelle Reid Trites and Lloyd A. Trites. The lease was reassigned to the Albert County Historical Society Inc. in 2005.
The stone around this base is from the original Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada cairn that was erected to commemorate Prime Minister R.B. Bennett. The cairn was built by William "Bill" Reid in 1953.
Le petit terrain rectangulaire, d'environ 0,6 acre (0,24 hectare), faisant partie de la concession originale de 738 acres (298,6 hectares) accordée à Maître Robert Dickson et à Jesse Converse le 8 mai 1789. La concession comprenait toute la collectivité actuelle de Hopewell Cape. Plus tard, apres avoir été acquis par la municipalité d'Albert County, le terrain fit l'objet d'une entente de location de 999 ans Samuel Stewart, conclue le 22 janvier 1885, puis cedée a la famille Reid pour environ
100 ans (tout d'abord avec Elmo Reid, puis William Lewis Reid, et ensuite Annabelle Reid Trites et Lloyd A. Trites). La Albert County Historical Society en a fait l'acquisition en 2005.
Les pierres entourant la base proviennent du cairn original de la Commission des Lieux et Monuments Historiques du Canada erigé pour honorer le Premier Ministre R.B. Bennet[t]. Le cairn fut construit par William "Bill" Reid en 1953.
