Join Wyatt Heritage Properties at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre on Saturday April 28, at 2:00 p.m. for an illustrated talk on the History of Summer Street titled, A Streetscape of the Emerging Town by historian, former resident and Institute member, Faye Pound.

Architectural styles and changing social history will be highlighted. The transition from the farm fields of Green’s Shore to the lucrative shipbuilding, transportation and Silver Black Fox eras are reflected in the Summer Street of today. The historic Holman Garden, the 1886 Post Office, 1911 Armoury and the four square ‘fox’ architecture are a few of the highlights.

An interpretive walk along Summer Street with Faye and Wyatt
Heritage Properties staff will follow.
