Uniacke House, Mount Uniacke, Nova Scotia

Richard John Uniacke was a successful lawyer, judge and militia officer in the early 19th century. The china in this room was actually the Duke of Kent's! Queen Victoria's father!
The paintings are of his family and eminent members of British society from about 1690 up to when the house was built in 1816

Ian and Leena look around

And play a traditional game which they will use at military encampments.

Fort Edward National Historic Site, Windsor Nova Scotia

Private 45th Regiment of foot. The regiment which built the fort.

The oldest remaining blockhouse of its kind in North America.

Ian and Leena play in the parade ground.
Fort Edward was the Headquarters of the 2nd Battalion 84th Regiment, Royal Highland Emigrants. The last time i had visited the site was close to twenty five years ago. I driven by it countless times while with my family or at work. So it was a nice picnic that we had.

Edward Cornwallis 1749

This statue may be removed soon. I got a chance to take pictures before it was removed.
When i have more of a chance to put up some historical information, I will do so.
Due to the change of public perception and the wishes of the MikMaq people, this statue was removed and placed in storage. This will probably be an indefinite storage.
