1866 - n.d.
In 1866, a committee known as the Glass Eye Society was formed by the Ladies Sewing Circle Society of North Head, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick. Its purpose was to purchase land and build a public hall and school for the Island. The members of the first committee were Mrs. Elizabeth Burke, Mrs. William D. Hartt, and Mrs. James A. Pettes. Land was purchased by Ebenezer and Sarah Gaskill for $30 in November 1866 and sold to the Justice of Charlotte County for $50 in 1876. The hall was built in 1876. In 1976, the Glass Eye Society handed the property over to the Village of North Head, which accepted the responsibility for the Town Hall.
