Memory Lane Heritage Village, located in Lake Charlotte in the Eastern Shore region, is an award-winning living history village depicting life in rural Nova Scotia during the 1940s.


The village features 16 rescued and restored buildings with period artifacts including a general store, one-room schoolhouse, church, icehouse and cookhouse. Rural industries such as gold mining, forestry, fishing and boat building are represented in our village buildings and activities. Antique vehicles include a 1928 Model A, a 1948 International pickup and a 1949 Farmal Cub Tractor. 
Most buildings include soundscape audio, and costumed guides are on hand to provide tours, answer questions and demonstrate traditional skills. 
Enjoy our mobile media apps, avialable on your personal mobile device, or on a rented tablet, as well as the kittens, Ask the friendly storekeeper for details! Children will love the kittens, lambs, and chicks that roam the grounds. 


The Village Cookhouse serves traditional 1940s food (called chow) from 11 AM to 3 PM. A “Tour & Chow” special is available, as well as senior / youth / and group discounts.
