Mahone Bay Settlers Museum
Mahone Bay , Nova Scotia


   The historic town of
Mahone Bay, settled in the
1764 on the rocky coast of
Nova Scotia, reflects its
illustrious past in
wonderfully preserved
architecture. Wooden
buildings feature pedimented
dormers, gingerbread
decoration, raised eyebrow

trim over windows, Italianate
entrances and the classic
Lunenburg Bump.
   Stories recorded from the
town’s early days as a centre
for shipbuilding and fishing
tell tales of trips to the
Grand Banks, shipwrecks, the
August Gales, privateers, rum
running and trade throughout

the maritime world.
   The Mahone Bay Settlers
Museum is proud to present
Windows on the Past: A
virtual tour of Mahone Bay,
an exhibit designed to
capture the imagination
through historical and
contemporary photographs and
descriptive letters. In the

fine tradition of touring, we
supply the guide and the
locale and take you to meet
some of Mahone Bay’s
colourful historical
characters to hear stories of
rum running and haunted
