Funding 50 Years of History
Marking the 50th Anniversary of the West Hants Historical Society
It's our big anniversary
For over 50 years, the West Hants Historical Society has collected and preserved the stories and artifacts of families, businesses and organizations that contributed to the life of Windsor and West Hants.
To mark our 50th anniversary, the WHHS is raising $50,000 for “Funding History” that will provide a sustainable base for operations and development for the next 50 years.

Donating to our “Funding History” campaign benefits all our local residents and businesses. Seniors have their memories preserved, while youth have their dreams fed with tales of the past. Businesses and organizations benefit from the numerous visitors who come to explore our colourful history and their family origins. Governments and public agencies use research provided by WHHS to shape current plans which reflect the past use of lands and properties.
