Colchester Heritage Sites
"In 1980, the government of Nova Scotia passed the Heritage Property Act in order to help identify, protect and rehabilitate built heritage of historic, architectural and cultural significance and to encourage the continued use of this resource." (gov.ns.ca)
Starting in 1997, the County of Colchester began designating Municipal Heritage Properties. Today, there are fourteen such properties within Colchester County.
Several other properties have been named Provincial Heritage Sites, such as the Balmoral Grist Mill and St. James United Church in Great Village. There are many other sites which have the potential to become Heritage Sites within the County.
