Guest Lectures

On August 15th MA Candidate Jennifer MacKinnon will be presenting a lecture on Sir Walter Scott’s Waverley. This special presentation “Why is Waverley, Waverley?” will include historical context, literary analysis, and local history. If you have ever been curious about how Waverley got it’s name and what it means mark you calendars! More details to follow!


Don Snider made a special presentation to the fire service on July 18th, 2017. Presented by the Waverley Historical Society, Mr. Snider spoke about the experience of fire fighters during the Halifax Explosion. This was a private lecture for the purposes of the fire service but we hope to be able to present an encore presentation for the public in the near future! IMG_20170718_194625
