The exhibit is titled “Witnesses to a New Nation: 150 Buildings That Saw Confederation”. The buildings selected highlight the varied cultural groups who made Nova Scotia their home. Residences, churches, commercial and industrial structures, as well as public buildings are represented. The exhibit is a way of showing that these buildings are an important part of Canada’s cultural fabric.
We are pleased and honoured to announce that our own Covenanter Church was among the 150 buildings selected to be part of this exhibit.
“Witnesses to a New Nation” debuted at Government House on June 3. The exhibit then travelled to Stellarton, Amherst, and Shelburne. The exhibit will be at the Kings County Museum in Kentville from August 17 – September 22, before returning to Halifax in October at City Hall and Saint Paul’s Anglican Church, and closing for the year at Government House.
Each of the 150 buildings was professionally photographed and a brief write-up accompanies each image.
