Our Summer of Trains was a big success and attracted a lot of attention. Thanks for everyone who came out and supported our 2016 project! Randall House has now closed for the season but we are already planning big things for next summer.  In the meantime …

Keep the Valentines Day celebrations going and join us at 2:00 pm on Wednesday February 15 as we hold our monthly talk at the St. John’s Anglican Church Hall ( 160 Main St., Wolfville). The wonderful Wendy Robicheau, Archivist at the Esther Clark Wright Archives, and Acadia student Jenna Colclough will present “Acadia and the First World War.” The talk will explore just how Acadia University’s students and staff, the Acadia Collegiate Academy, as well as the Acadia Ladies Seminary responded to the First World War.

We hope to see all of you on February 15!

 And you might wish to attend this free talk…

THE MONA PARSONS Project. After a Wolfville, Nova Scotia childhood, Parsons became a ‑1920’s New York chorus girl,a Depression-era nurse, the wife of a Dutch millionaire, an underground worker in the resistance, a prisoner of the Nazis, and an emaciated fugitive who walked across Nazi Germany in the dying months of World War .
Canada has never done anything to recognize or honour this brave Canadian—the only Canadian, female civilian to have been imprisoned by the Nazis. So members of the Women of Wolfville and the Wolfville Historical Society have quietly begun fund raising to erect a statue in Parsons’ memory. For more information click here.
