McCluskey Suggests Waterfront Location for New Heritage Museum

(Friday, February 1/08)-- Councillor Gloria McCluskey said today a building on the Dartmouth waterfront would make a great location to display the thousands of artifacts now in storage from the former Dartmouth Heritage Museum.

"It's a shame most of the artifacts from the heritage museum are in storage. Some are on display in Evergreen House, but it is not large enough," she said. "The residents of Dartmouth are very proud of their heritage and I think the time has come for them to have a heritage museum again."

Councillor McCluskey said the lease HRM has with the Halifax Regional School Board for use of the former Dartmouth City Hall on the waterfront expires in the next year or so, and if the board decided not to renew it, she suggested it would make an ideal location for the heritage museum.

The Councillor said a heritage museum on the Dartmouth waterfront would further enhance the area as a visitor destination, which now includes the Dartmouth library, Alderney Gate, the Peace Pavilion and the downtown Dartmouth business core.
