Custodial history

Records were donated to the Musquodoboit Harbour Heritage Society (MHHS) by Stanley Flaherty on July 23, 1998. The records were housed at the Musquodoboit Harbour Railway Museum until they were donated to the Eastern Shore archives in 2012, along with the rest of their archival holdings, as their mandate no longer supported the collection of archival material. Textual material in series five was originally donated to the MHHS by Andrea and Dale Montgomery.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of land records related to the Flaherty and Kennedy families and regarding land in Petpeswick and near Martinique Beach. Fonds also contains a marriage certificate and telephone bills for Mrs. Stanley F. Flaherty in the 1960s.
