Another season has come to an end! It was a very busy summer with lots of events going on in the community and great visitors from all over the world.We are looking forward to our busiest cruise ship months of September and October and onward to next summer, but for now we close our doors for the off season. Although we do not keep regular hours throughout the winter months, we are always happy to accommodate visitors by appointment. If you’re in the Pier from September through to May 2013/2014, and wish to stop by the Museum, please contact Sandra Dunn @ (902) 562-8454, or Simon Gillis @ (902) 564-4248
Finally, as we end our season, we would like to take a moment to thank all our volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the whole year to keep our museum running smoothly. There would be nothing without them and for that, we send out a huge thanks to all our volunteers.!
Here at the Whitney Pier Historical Society, we are trying to preserve all aspects of the Whitney Pier area. That is why we are asking you, our visitors to help us out! We are looking for photos from the Eastmount school, preferably official class photos. If you have any and would be willing to donate a copy, as we don’t want to take your original, we would be much obliged. Thank you to all who donate to the museum and help to preserve the vibrant history of the Whitney Pier!
Check us out on Facebook! Just search for Whitney Pier Historical Museum. Until August 26, 2013 you can like and share our Facebook page for your chance to win a copy of the book “From the Pier Dear!” The book tells the story of the Pier and contains nearly 150 photographs!
