Historic Nova Scotia is a free app that allows you to explore Nova Scotia’s rich history. Developed by a number of cultural heritage organizations in Nova Scotia, Historic Nova Scotia is a mobile application that provides an interpretive view of many aspects of the region’s history. Each point on the interactive GPS-enabled map includes historical information about the site along with historic images and other digital resources from Nova Scotia’s cultural heritage organizations.
Currently the app is under development with new content being added on an ongoing basis. Updates on the project can be found on the project’s website: https://historicnovascotia.ca. We welcome new contributions, if you would like to become involved in contributing digital stories, reviewing content, please contact us at email@example.com.
