Come visit one of the oldest stone buildings on Cape Breton Island. "The Forge," built between 1780 and 1800, was an important enterprise on Isle Madame. Step back to a time when shipbuilding flourished and local captains sailed all over the globe. Experience a working forge, and peruse a collection of tools and artifacts that tell some of the stories of Isle Madame.


The LeNoir Forge Museum is part of the LeNoir Landing site, which also houses a genealogy centre, community archives, a boat barn containing displays and information on our seafaring past, a gift shop, and other shanties used for exhibits. Chat with our bilingual interpreters and take part in on-site programs and activities.
