Kentville Historical Society

The Kentville Heritage Centre is located in the former Via Station on Station Lane in Kentville. There are artifacts and photos of old Kentville, the Dominion Atlantic Railway, sports, and written materials, all of which display the history of the town.

This season we plan to be open 6 days a week, Tuesday to Sunday, with regular hours during the week 10-4 pm, and also Sundays from 1 – 4 pm. Come view our regular displays, which once again include the KCA (Kings County Academy) Exhibit, as well as new items in the DAR room, and a special display on the former Sanatorium!

Also new this season, is the Masonic Garden located next to the Centre. We are located alongside the Harvest Moon Trail on Station Lane in downtown Kentville!
