Industrial Heritage Nova Scotia (IHNS) was founded in 1996 to bring together people interested in the preservation and interpretation of Nova Scotia's rich industrial past. Our group meets to present and discuss our common history, visit sites and undertake site recording using archaeological techniques. Industrial heritage consists of the remains of industrial culture which are of historical, technological, social, architectural or scientific value. We are also interested in industrial archaeology, an interdisciplinary method for studying documents, artifacts, human settlements, and landscapes created for or by industrial processes.
