St. Lawrence Miner's Memorial Museum

St. Lawrence

Discover the heroic story of the St. Lawrence miners, who saved 186 sailors from shipwrecked American WWII boats: the USS Truxtun, the USS Pollux, and the USS Wilkes. During our guided tour, you’ll learn how miners lived, worked, and died tragically due to poor working conditions. Embark on a journey to Chamber Cove, the site of the Truxtun shipwreck, and envision the danger the miners faced during the rescue. Walk the scenic Bergeron trail and enjoy a picnic lunch along the cragged coastline.
