The Eastern Shore Archives was established by the Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society following the establishment of Memory Lane Heritage Village in Lake Charlotte in 2003. The society aimed to increase its efforts to advance and support genealogical and historical research on the Eastern Shore. It converted one of the village’s buildings into a modern research centre and archival repository, which opened to the public as the Genealogy and Archives Research Centre in 2003. In 2005, the centre was given the status of “institutional archive” according to standards established by the Council of Nova Scotia Archives and Canadian Council of Archives. In 2008, it changed its name to the Eastern Shore Archives in order to reflect the expansion of its acquisition policy to cover the entire Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.
