Hence it would hardly seem strange to find Prince Henry Sinclair grandmaster of the Freemasons three-quarters of a century later. The question is what would he have been doing in Nova Scotia? Besides material treasure, some believe the Templars may have found documents which could potentially have shaken the foundations of the Catholic Church, documents which questioned some of their fundamental and long taught tenets. Perhaps what they possessed was simply too explosive to harbor in Scotland. Nova Scotia (or New Scotland) would have been a great alternative.

There are other remnants in North America thought to have connections including the circular Newport Tower (circular buildings being the typical style of a Templar preceptory), the presence of which was possibly documented as a “Norman villa” by Verrazano in 1524, and a stone inscribed with what is considered to be the figure of Templar knight. The stone is dubbed the “Westford Knight” due to its discovery in that town in Massachusetts.

Many readers may have been familiar with much of what I’ve outlined. Most are not familiar with the so called “Mystery Walls”, found near Nova Scotia’s capital, Halifax. This is a protected site, but it has not been extensively explored. It is located on high ground and is naturally fortified by ridges, supplemented with walls built in a style similar to medieval walls I’ve seen in the U.K.

The area is well back from the harbor of Halifax, and cleared of trees, would have an incredible and unique panoramic view of the harbor and its entrance, ideal for a defensive position. There is a pentagonal structural foundation within the walls which has a general eastward orientation. The building also has a smaller chamber located on the north side of the structure (which some have dubbed the Grail chamber).

The number five and the “five points” of a pentagon have specific meanings both the Freemasons as does the orientation of a building to the east, like the temple of King Solomon. In the Bible, 1 Kings tells us that the gateway to the Holy of Holies was pentagonal in shape. Furthermore, a perusal of the map of Templar structures in the Rennes-le-Chateau area reveals that the structures are orientated in a perfect pentagram.

Was this the first Masonic lodge in North America? At present, the first documented Masonic lodge meeting in North America occurred at the Sinclair Inn, in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, in 1738. Further food for thought is the fact that Nova Scotia was first known as Acadia (a corruption of Arcadie or Arcadia) in the early 1600′s. Those who believe the blood line of Christ passed through the Merovingian Kings will recall that Arcadia, Greece was the first place to which Christ’s descendants were alleged to have emigrated after leaving Judea before moving on to France.

This leaves me with one final question: What exactly was Sinclair hiding (or retrieving) in Nova Scotia? I can’t help but wonder if something of earth-shaking importance remains to be discovered on this province’s shores.
