Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum
Halifax , Nova Scotia


politicians of the need to
protect the fragile
ecosystems that were the Cole
Harbour salt marsh. Having
first rallied to protect the
natural history of Cole
Harbour the membership of
CHEC, and others, soon
realize that the cultural
history was also under

threat, as farms were being
demolished, replaced by new
homes, businesses, schools
and urban parkland.
   Using the collections of
the Cole Harbour Heritage
Farm archive, this exhibit
endeavours to present to the
visitor glimpses of the
community of Cole Harbour

then and now. Much of the
exhibit will focus on the
Cole Harbour Road and the
changes that urban lifestyles
have had our rural routes.

   The Cole Harbour Heritage
Farm Museum would like to
thank the Cole Harbour Rural
Heritage Society, the
Storytellers Circle of
Halifax, former CHHFM
Executive Director Elizabeth
Corser and YCW students Ryan
Kelly and Miranda Romkey in
