Heritage Plaque Project

The Guysborough Historical Society is pleased to announce that historical plaques commemorating the estimated age and the original owner of the buildings in Guysborough and surrounding areas are available upon order.

The Guysborough Historical Society endeavours to preserve and promote the rich local history of Guysborough and surrounding area. This project has been successful since it began in 2004 and now it is spreading to outlying communities of Guysborough.

Plaques are historically authentic

If you are unsure of the origin of your home, business or church, you can request assistance from the
Historical Society. An addition minimal research fee will be added if you require research.

Plaques are locally produced

The plaque will be constructed of cedar, sandblasted and treated with a special ultraviolet protector to give an estimated lifespan of 25 to 30 years. The cost includes mounting the plaque on your building, which will be done by a volunteer of the Historical Society.
