A Marker of DistinctionSullivan's Pond was a vital feature of the historic Shubenacadie Canal, the traditional water route of Mi'kmaq Indians connecting the harbour at Dartmouth with Minas Pasin and the Bay of Fundy. When the Canal operated, from 1861 to 1870, water from the Pond powered an incline railway which carried vessels along the quarter-mile route from the harbor to the Pond, the surface of which is more than 50 feet above mean harbor level.
