Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society
The Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society was founded in 1995 by community members primarily from communities around the “ Loop ”: Lake Charlotte, Ship Harbour, DeBaie’s Cove, Owls Head, Little Harbour, Clam Harbour and Clam Bay, as well as Upper Lakeville, Oyster Pond and East and West Jeddore.
The Society recognized a need for preserving the heritage of these communities, and its creation was spurred on by imminent loss of significant heritage buildings in the area, such as the Hosking General Store.
The Heritage Society is overseen by a volunteer board of directors, a year-round part-time Executive Director, and over 150 volunteers. As part of its education mandate, the Society owns and operates Memory Lane Heritage Village, a living history museum depicting rural, coastal, Nova Scotia life in the 1940s.
The 2011 Board of Directors are:
