The Madawaska Memorial to the Acadian's Landing here has always been a cross. Previously stationed at numerous sites around St. David, the current site- on a property abutting the St. David Church- was chosen in 1922. Placed on the National Registry of Historical Places in 1973, this year will mark the 100th anniversary of the current Cross Site.
The man on the left is the Reverend Louis Huot, who oversaw the construction of the present St. David Church. The man on the right is Bishop of Portland Louis Walsh, who during his tenure (1906-1924) blessed the Church as it went into service.
