Memory Lane Heritage Village

This site in Clam Harbour Road, Lake Charlotte is community owned and operated and features 13 rescued and restored buildings that illustrate rural village life in Nova Scotia in the 1940s. The buildings include a general store, a one-room schoolhouse, church, homestead, barn, icehouse, workshop, goldmining complex, boatshop, fisherman's store, garage and cookhouse. Local people demonstrate traditional skills like rug hooking for visitors, and the cookhouse offers typical 1940s cookhouse meals.

Information & Facts

Lake Charlotte
$6 (adults), $4 (children); other concessions available
The official languages are English and French (predominantly in Quebec).

The currency used is the Canadian Dollar (CAD), which is divided into 100 cents. One-dollar coins are also known as loonies (due to the picture of a loon, a type of bird, on the coin), and two-dollar coins as toonies. Banks and bureaux de change will change money and travellers cheques, as will some hotels, but the rate will not be as good. Major credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are plentiful. US Dollars are largely accepted, though due to fraud, larger notes might not be and change is usually given in Canadian dollars.

Opening Times
Daily 11am to 4pm (15 June to 15 September only)
Canada covers six time zones, from GMT 8 in the west to GMT -3.5 in the east.
