The Kings Historical Society acknowledges that we are located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. We acknowledge the treaties of peace and friendship, and we extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and learn on this territory in mutual respect and gratitude.
The Kings County Museum is located in the iconic brick courthouse on Cornwallis St., in Kentville, Nova Scotia. Once the seat of justice in the county, this building is now a community hub for the preservation, cultivation, education, and research of all things related to Kings County.
The building is also home to an active group of community researchers and a rich resource of genealogical and community history.
