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.
Dear Members and Friends,
Our next meeting and talk for the 2017/18 season will be held on Monday November 6 at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
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.
