Talk on lumber empire coming up in Kings County
On Nov. 17 at 7 p. m., there will be a public event about The Davison Lumbering Empire at the County of Kings building.
The event is being hosted by the Kings County Museum in the Orchard Room of the municipal building, at 87 Cornwallis St. The entrance is located at the back of the building by the lower right end of public parking lot.
While there is no charge, there will be a free will offering with all proceeds going to the Kings County Museum.
A guest speaker, Philip Spencer, will give a presentation on the evolution of lumbering in Canada, focusing primarily on the lumber mills that evolved into the Davison lumbering empire. It was a business that affected Nova Scotia socially, politically, economically and industrially.
Everyone is welcome.
