We Tell the Stories of East Hants

The East Hants Historical Society, established in 1967, is a volunteer, non-profit organization devoted to the promotion and preservation of history within East Hants, NS, Canada.

They Went Away...

We're looking for stories of your ancestors who migrated away from East Hants in the early 1900s. You can learn more here.


What's new?

We've added a new section--Memoirs--to our Archives & Research page. Two new memoirs, James E. Kerr's World War II memoir From Nova Scotia to the Netherlands (and Back), and Elizabeth Saef's Hayes Cave recollections of her family's trips from Massachusetts to South Maitland to visit the Hayes family homestead and her Uncle Richard Hayes. 

 Christina Ross Frame's work Golden Years in Acadie is now uploaded to the Local History page.

The World War I and World War II databases under Local History have also been updated.
