This site includes a complete collection of historical documents and images, and one animation, related to the mysterious appearance of a stranger on a beach in Nova Scotia in 1863. "Jerome" is all his tombstone says. The marker in the cemetery at Meteghan, in Clare, Nova Scotia, is silent about who he was and where he came from, but the local folklore is not. On September 8th, 1863, a stranger was found on the beach of nearby Sandy Cove, alive but legless and mute. He lived nearly another fifty years, cared for by the people of Baie Sainte-Marie, and his story grew to include the mafia, pirate tales, European nobles, Civil War deserters.... Who was this mystery man and how did he come to the shores of Acadia? Visitors can look at the collection of archival materials and develop their critical thinking skills by analyzing the evidence provided. Students are encouraged to come up with their own interpretations of primary documents, rather than relying on other peoples analyses. Educators have access to a Teachers' Guide and experts interpretations of the mystery. The site is available in English and French.
