The Community Albums project is a collection of exhibits, or albums, created by archival institutions across Nova Scotia who volunteered their time to select and describe archival materials that tell important stories about the communities they serve.

This project is a celebration of the uniqueness of communities across Nova Scotia and a portal for their stories from 1867 onwards. This project illustrates the depth and diversity of archival holdings across Nova Scotia, bringing together photographs of many types, diary entries, textile items, and even music!

Dipping into these archives through these albums gives you just a taste of what each larger, physical archive holds. Discover new archives, explore ones you’re familiar with, and maybe next time you’re in town, visit them!
