Stellarton

Stellarton has a rich history in coal mining and the hometown of Sobey's, a Canadian Grocery icon.  

Stellarton, Nova Scotia

What we now know as Stellarton, was first settled by some families from the Ship Hector in 1774. A few years later coal was discovered and led to the development of the first pit that became known as the MacGregor Seam.

The War of 1812 increased the demand for coal and the area became known as Coal Mines Station, that was later changed Albion Mines until 1870. The town was then renamed to Stellarton after a type of torbanite known as "stellarite" that sparkles when burned. Coal mining remained the main industry in Stellarton until oil started to replace coal in the 1950's. These days there is only one active open pit coal mine, operated by Pioneer Coal.

The Museum of Industry  contains hundreds of artifacts rela…

How to Search Your Family Tree

Most of us desire to know where we came from and what our family history is, especially in Pictou County where most of us have descended from families that emigrated here from Europe, but how do you search your Family Tree?

Most people tend to believe that it is too hard to do all the research needed to put their family history together, but in reality it is not very hard at all. Below are some hints and tips on researching your family history.

First, you can start by getting anything you already have together such as pictures, heirlooms, documents, diaries, or family Bibles, anything that may have bits of information to get your research started.

Cold temperatures perfect for outdoor rinks

The quick drop in the temperature this week has some people jumping for joy. Proudfoot said that two inches is the ideal thickness for the outdoor rink but it can be opened if an inch and half of solid ice is in place. If the cold temperatures keep up, that means the ice could be open for business by Saturday or Sunday. He said once the ice is up and running, a schedule will be posted on its website, or at the community centre. The canteen will be open and the centre is available for rentals for special events. The public is invited to use the ice free of charge for skating and pick-up hockey events. The West Side’s annual winter carnival will also take place this Jan. 22-24. Events include a children’s dance, public skating, sledding and fireworks. On Jan. 31, the west will meet the north side for the fifth annual Jean MacLeod Proudfoot Memorial Broomball Challenge. “This year is at the north end if they get off their off their butts and get making ice over ther…
