about

On a balmy August morning in 1846, a child was born to Ann and Alexander Swan in the couple’s small wood cabin in Millbrook, Colchester County, Nova Scotia. This in itself was not odd, as home was where babies where most often born in the mid 19th century. What was surprising, however, was that Anna Swan weighed an amazing 6 kilograms (13 pounds) –almost twice the size of an average newborn.

Anna Swan grew to an astonishing size –nearly 2.5 meters (almost 8 feet) tall. She was billed as “The Nova Scotia Giant Girl” at P.T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York. But despite her unusual and challenging physical attributes, she rose above adversity and led the life of love, happiness and great accomplishments. This is her remarkable story.
