Barns of the Eastern Shore Lecture

The Fieldwood Heritage Society is pleased to invite you to a presentation by Gordon Hammond on The Barns of the Eastern Shore. Old barns are iconic, beautiful parts of our landscape which are rapidly being lost, taking with them important insights into the creativity of early Nova Scotian farmers. Gordon is a professional museum planner, and has been instrumental in developing Memory Lane Heritage Village. Please join us this Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 from 6-8 pm. The event will start with a tour of Kevin Wood’s barn on highway 358, located in Port Williams NS, just south of Church Street (with the large white barns), and continue with Gordon’s presentation at the St John’s Anglican Church Hall (on the corner of Church Street and Highway 358). Parking is available at the church. Admission is $10 (cash or cheque only, please). Refreshments will be served. See attached poster for details.
