Our Mission

The Lunenburg County Historical Society (LCHS), a registered society, whose mission is to accurately and interactively interpret the heritage of the LaHave estuary and its hinterlands, to protect and care-take the significant character defining elements of this National Historic site, and to actively celebrate the LaHave community from the first inhabitants to present day.

We’re always looking for interesting artefacts that reflect the heritage of the LaHave river area and help us tell the stories of this area. Our Collections Committee accepts or declines donations on an individual basis, based on the item’s ability to enhance our historical purpose and fulfill our mission.

We are also extremely grateful for bequests, which are instrumental in upgrading as well as maintaining our exhibits.


Donate To the Museum

Please contact the museum or our Curator Marla Webber at 902-688-1620 if you would like to discuss a donation or gift to Fort Point Museum. Thank you!


Corporate Support

The support of local companies is vital to keeping alive the history of where we all live and work. The Lunenburg County Historical Society is completely volunteer run and has been in operation for almost 50 years. You can support us with a corporate membership, sponsorship of an event, or sponsorship of a specific display or interpretive panel. We will support you with appropriate advertising space and our sincerest thanks.
