About our Fund…
The Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society was founded in 1995 by community members from Lake Charlotte, Ship Harbour, DeBaie’s Cove, Owls Head, Little Harbour, Clam Harbour and Clam Bay, as well as Upper Lakeville and Oyster Pond / Jeddore who recognized a need for preserving the heritage of these communities. In fact, the Society’s creation was spurred on by the imminent loss of significant heritage buildings in the area, such as the Hosking General Store.
Over the past fifteen years, members of the Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society have dedicated themselves to preserving and sharing the unique human and natural history of the Lake Charlotte area. Today, the Heritage Society is overseen by a volunteer board of directors, a paid part-time Executive Director, and over 120 volunteers. As part of its education mandate, the Society owns and operates Memory Lane Heritage Village, a living history museum depicting rural Nova Scotia life in the 1940s and which has as a focal point, the beloved Hosking General Store!
