Annapolis Heritage Society | Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia


When the O’Dell House Museum opened in 1969 it became the repository for many items relating to the history of the community.  Donations came from local citizens and descendants of former residents. Before that date most such objects were donated to the Officer’s Quarters at Fort Anne, opened in 1919 as Canada’s first national historic site. The opening of the the town’s “community” museum coincided with a Parks Canada decision to focus on military history at the Fort Anne site.  Over the years the Society has acquired many single items and several notable collections of material.  The Collections have been divided into two categories, artifacts and archives.
