The Tide Recedes

This semi-biographical presentation pays tribute to John Harley, Beaubears Island’s final shipbuilder. Harley, who arrived in Miramichi from Ireland in 1823, built more than sixty ships on the River, all of exceeding quality, and partnered with industry giants like William Abrams and George Burchill, all the while becoming an icon in his own right. Join the cast as John rises as a master builder in Rosebank, and see him shepherd the Island through the decline of the shipbuilding industry.
