History

The Guysborough Historical Society was founded in 1973 by a group of local citizens, who joined together to protect Guysborough’s legacy.

In 1976 the group preserved and restored the old Court House to create a community museum and accommodate a visitor information centre.

In addition to operating the Museum, the Society holds public meetings and lectures on matters of local historical interest, supports the publication of local histories, sponsors student summer employment, and organizes community fundraising activities.
