When Irish settlers migrated to Amherst Island, they brought a unique way of building walls: the technique is called dry-stacking. Using technical knowledge and skills, these Irish immigrants layered stones without the use of mortar. Instead, gravity is the glue that holds these stone walls together. The tradition of constructing and maintaining these walls has continued to this day.
