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!
Our first talk of the 2020 year will be held at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic on Monday evening at 7:30, February 3, 2020. Doors open at 7:00. Our guest speaker is Frank Crowell Leaman.
Frank is a writer, researcher, genealogist and active member of the Evergreen Writers Group. Born and raised in Dartmouth and Chester, Frank spent much of his life working on or near the ocean. Frank comes by his love of the sea from his father, also Frank Emmanuel Leaman, and grandfather William Crowell, who shares a prominent position in the Age of Sail Gallery at the MMA. Frank will speak about this and his upcoming book “Tales of a Buccaneer” (working title).
As always, we will be hosted at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30 start. We hope to see you there!
