Upcoming Talks and Activities

                 IHNS NEWS:

Dear Members and Friends,

Our first meeting and talk for the 2017/18 season will be held on Monday October 2 at the Maritime Museum.


The old adage of not spoiling a good story with the facts has been applied to the matter of passageways and activity (legal or otherwise) below the streets and sidewalks of downtown Halifax for generations. Our October talk, by archaeologist and buildings sleuth Laura de Boer, is titled ‘The Myth, the Muddle, the Tunnel: Exploring the evidence behind Halifax’s underground tall tale’. Hopefully Laura, for once and for all, can set the record straight!


I am pleased to be able to provide some advance notice regarding our talks for November and December. In November Gordon Fader will talk about Halifax Harbour, for so long a significant force in the industrial history of Nova Scotia, and in December  the sawmills of Hammonds Plains will be the subject of a talk by Dave Haverstock of the Hammonds Plains Historical Society.

Want to suggest a subject for a public talk? Want to ask us a question?  Please contact our Chair or our Secretary to add your input.

Dedicated to the preservation, presentation, and study of Nova Scotia's industrial heritage
