Memory Lane Heritage Village

This site in Clam Harbour Road, Lake Charlotte, is community owned and operated and features 13 rescued and restored buildings that illustrate rural village life in Nova Scotia in the 1940s. The buildings include a general store, a one-room schoolhouse, church, homestead, barn, icehouse, workshop, gold mining complex, boat shop, fisherman's store, garage and cookhouse. Local people demonstrate traditional skills like rug hooking for visitors, and the cookhouse offers typical 1940s cookhouse meals, completing the feeling of immersion in a coastal 1940s community. This living museum is award-winning and interesting and will fill a few hours with fun for the whole family.
