The Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society takes pleasure in launching its on-line series of HISTORICAL PLAQUES. These represent a continuation of the physical plaques the Society erected at various sites around Nova Scotia through the first half of the twentieth century. The new memorials offer valuable information about crucial people, places and events in this province’s remarkable past.
