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.
Our talks, always open to the general public, begin at 7:30 sharp, at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. We encourage members of the general public who are interested in the industrial heritage of our Province to join our organization. An annual membership fee of $15 is all it takes. Your membership will grant you a front row seat at any outings, and visits to various industrial sites as part of our annual field trips. Join the fun!
Dear Members and Friends,
Our November meeting of 2019-20 season will take place on Monday, November 4, 2019, at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
This talk should be an interesting one, delving into the history of photography in Nova Scotia.
Our speaker for the evening is Jeff Ward.
Jeff Ward was born in New Brunswick and has lived in Halifax since the late 1970s. He recently retired after nearly 35 years as a planning consultant. With a lifelong interest in history, particularly local history, he has published several articles in both planning and local history, sometimes combining them both, and published one book, a history of the Cape Maringouin area of New Brunswick, called Head of the Bay. That area was famed for its grindstone production.
A note to current and possible members, bring along $15 for your annual dues and see Laura! Thanks so much. See you on the 7th!
