Cyrus Eaton's birthplace
Cyrus Eaton was born in Pugwash River in 1983 and moved to Pugwash Junction when he was about 8. He moved to the United States in his early twenties where he and his family lived on Euclid Ave in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1912 he bought Acadia Farms in Northfield, Ohio which became his permanent residence. In 1913 he became a naturalized US citizen. In 1928 he purchased land in Deep Cove off Mahone Bay and Andrew Cobb designed his summer home, where he spent summers until 1978 the year before his death. In 1928 he formed the Pugwash Park Commission which purchased Pineo Lodge in Pugwash. It was his intention that the Pineo Lodge and the Pagweak Tea room, later known as Thinkers' Lodge and the Dining Hall, would bring visitors to Pugwash and provide jobs for the local population. Eaton never lived at the Lodge nor was it ever his summer home.
