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.


Something new!

We've added a new page to Archives & Research--Genealogy Holdings--listing all the resources we currently have for your genealogy research.


Upcoming Events (on hold because of covid-19, BUT....)

We are proud to announce that the first segments of our Virtual Museum Tour are now available here under the Archives & Research menu, as well as on our Facebook and Instagram sites and YouTube channel. Learn more about our museum exhibits and East Hants history. We appreciate the hard work our guides, Jenna and Alyssa, have done to make these quality videos.
