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 quietly began fund raising to erect a statue in Parsons’ memory. The statue was completed and erected on the grounds of the Wolfville Post office. For more information click here.

 

Memorial Book

Our Civic Memorial book has entries for prominent Wolfville citizens who are historically important to the town, and have provenance to the Historical Society. The entire list of entries is online and viewable by clicking this link or via our Resources page.

 

You can browse our collection of over three thousand artefacts on NovaMuse. What is NovaMuse? A collection of collections – A system to connect collections with the public — A place to share your knowledge or memory of an artefact. Many of our entries also contain pictures, so you can visit objects that may not be on display in our exhibits at the museum!
