Heritage Spotlight Series - A Quick Trip to Mooseland in 1860

Eastern Shore Heritage Spotlight Series

Every Thursday, at 7 PM in the Clam Factory, local history experts and enthusiasts will present a ½ hour illustrated “talk” on a local history topic followed by a brief Q&A. Bar service will be available for those who wish to enjoy a spirited beverage along with their history lesson.

There is no additional charge to attend these talks beyond regular admission, however seating is limited so reservations are required. (Society members get free admission).


September 2nd: A Quick Trip to Mooseland in 1860

Gold was discovered on the Tangier River near Mooseland in 1858. By 1860, men were rushing there in hopes of striking it rich and in July of that year, the governor of Nova Scotia sent Joseph Howe to investigate and report back. This talk will focus on the mechanics of Howe's relatively quick trip to Mooseland through the examination of his report, contemporary maps and other records as well as efforts to identify and retrace the route Howe followed. Presented by Scott Nixon.
