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 first meeting of 2019-20 season will take place on Monday, October 7, 2019, at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
This talk should be an interesting one, delving into the history of Halifax harbor as a port, specifically dealing with the years between 1915 and 1928.
Our speaker for the evening is Peter Ziobrowski.
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!
