In 1994 the Black Loyalist Heritage Society made application to the National Historic Sites and Monuments Board to have the landing of the Black Loyalists in Canada recognized as an event of national historic import. The National Historic Sites and Monuments approved the Black Loyalist Heritage Society’s application and honoured the Black Loyalists by creating a park and unveiled a monument in their memory in Birchtown, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia on July 20th, 1996. Legend and local oral folklore hold that this piece of land was a burial ground for Blacks.
