Our HeritageThe Mary Crowley monument is the first public monument in honour of a Canadian-born female. It was erected in 1870 following a unanimous vote of the Nova Scotia Legislature. "Mary E. Crowley lies beneath this sod, a victim to fraternal love, having rescued a younger brother and sister from the flames of her parents' dwelling, she exclaimed, 'Mother, all is over with me now, but I have saved my brother and sister.' She expired 24 hours after Oct. 15, 1869, aged 12 years. Greater love no man hath known. R.I.P."
