Thinkers Lodge National Historic Site, which lies on the Northumberland Coast at the mouth of the Pugwash River Estuary is open from June through October. Thinkers Lodge and its histories date back to the first half of the 19th century. In 1929, it was expanded and upgraded by Andrew R. Cobb, one of Nova Scotia’s most famous architects. Conferences, workshops, and educational events have been held here continuously since 1955. The most famous conference was the first Pugwash Conference on Science and World Affairs in 1957 that led to a Nobel Peace Prize in 1995 shared by the Conferences and by Joseph Rotblat, its spiritual leader. Rotblat’s Nobel is on display at the Lodge as is the Lenin Peace Prize won by Cyrus Eaton in 1960.
