Inscription.

This small rectangle of land was part of a 738 acre tract originally granted to Robert Dickson Esq. and Jesse Converse on 8 May 1789. The original land grant encompassed all of present day Hopewell Cape. Later, after being acquired by the Municipality of Albert County, this lot was leased to Samuel Stewart on 22 January 1885 with a 999 year term. Subsequently it was held by the Reid Family of Hopewell Cape for about 100 years: first by Elmo Reid, then William "Bill" Reid and finally by Annabelle Reid Trites and Lloyd A. Trites. The lease was reassigned to the Albert County Historical Society Inc. in 2005.

The stone around this base is from the original Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada cairn that was erected to commemorate Prime Minister R.B. Bennett. The cairn was built by William "Bill" Reid in 1953.
