Erected by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada, this memorial is dedicated to the members of No. 2 Construction Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. In 1987, it was suggested to the Mayor of Pictou that the Market Wharf receive recognition for its role in Canadian history. Four years later, Pictou town council declared the site a municipal historic property. From there, the Pictou council and the Black Cultural Centre for Nova Scotia mounted a joint effort to gain national recognition for the site and the battalion. The effort achieved success, when in 1993 the Historic Sites and Monuments Board announced its decision to commemorate the Market Wharf for its role as headquarters for No. 2 Construction Battalion.
