Upcoming Talks and Activities

                 IHNS NEWS:

Our next meeting and talk will be held on Monday March 6, at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

In partnership with the Museum of Industry and the Nova Scotia Archaeology Society IHNS has been working towards discovering more about the 1828 foundry built by the General Mining Association at Stellarton. Our March talk will  provide some insights into the pivotal role the foundry played in the development of industrializing Nova Scotia and Canada. We will also examine the foundry itself and some of its products in addition to an overview of the archaeology undertaken and envisioned at the site.


This is industrial archaeology at its best and will make for an interesting evening.
