The Hall’s Harbour Historical Society was formed
in 1997. For the purposes of the Society, the following
boundaries are used to refer to Hall’s Harbour:
the North Shore of the Municipality of the County of
Kings bounded on the North by the Bay of Fundy, on the
Westby Chipman Brook, on the South by Ross Corner and
Centreville and on the East by the Sheffield Vault,
including the Community of Hall’s Harbour.
The objectives of the Society are to preserve artifacts,
information, photographs and any other items relating
to the people and their life in Hall’s Harbour.
The Society has opened and operated the Red Fish House
Museum in the summer months each year.
In co-operation with the Fire
Department, the Society
was able to use the Katimavik Program in 1998 to do
work on the East Hall’s Harbour School, and now
it is used as a small School House
Museum and also used
to store artifacts and records of the Society. Other
Community organizations store their records here also.
A Community Access Program C@P a federal and provincial
funded program has been opened in the schoolhouse to
give the community access to computers. During the summer
months of July and August, a satellite c@p site has
been made available at the Red Fishhouse on the HH wharf.
This is very popular with the tourists and local residents.
Membership in the Historical Society is open to anyone
in the community as voting members and to non-residents
as non-voting members. At present there is a one time
fee of $2.00 for membership.
