The Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia in conjunction with other Heritage Societies throughout the province, supporters from varied walks of life, and sponsors will present a photographic exhibition of buildings which witnessed the birth of Confederation and continue to inspire 150 years later.
Featured buildings and their stories will be illustrative of the varied cultural groups who made Nova Scotia their home. Residences, both humble and grand, places of worship, commercial and industrial structures and public buildings will all be represented; providing an insight into both the evolving lifestyles of the populace, the contributions made to the Province and Canada by their owners and the impact many of these buildings had and continue to have in their communities.
Many lovely buildings from Kings County have been featured including: the Jeremiah Calkin House (Grand Pre), the Judge Elisha DeWolfe House (Wolfville) and the Stage Coach Inn (Kentville).
The goal is to increase awareness of Nova Scotia’s proud history through the windows of our built heritage.
