Memory Lane Heritage Village located in Lake Charlotte in the Eastern Shore region is an award-winning living history village depicting life in rural Nova Scotia during the 1940s, an era transformed by modern conveniences.
The village features 16 rescued and restored buildings with period artifacts including a general store, one-room schoolhouse, church, icehouse and cookhouse. Rural industries such as gold mining, forestry, fishing and boat building are represented in our village buildings and activities. Antique vehicles include a 1928 Model A, a 1948 International pickup and a 1949 Farmal Cub Tractor.
Most buildings include soundscape audio, and costumed guides are on hand to provide tours, answer questions and demonstrate traditional skills.
Children will enjoy our riddle-based “Heritage Hunt”, as well as the kittens, lambs and chicks that roam the grounds.
Authentic 1940s cookhouse meals are served daily, including fresh soup, and our famous baked beans and brown bread.
Our Gift Shop features 1940s-related products, as well as local crafts. Free Internet service is available in the Gift Shop.
The Eastern Shore Archives welcomes requests to do research by appointment. Visa, MasterCard and Direct Debit are accepted.
