A Visit to the Museum
Below is a clip of three visitors who came to the Chestico Museum in August of 2008. Two of the ladies had Port Hood roots – they were the daughters of Dan Martin MacDonald of Harbourview. With them that day was their friend from Bulgaria. They were kind enough to treat us to an impromptu ceilidh during their visit. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
