While looking for some historical information on Murphy Cove recently we stumbled upon the Eastern Shore Archives and the “Coastal Community Mapping Project”. This Community Mapping process made connections between the communities along the Eastern Shore and their marine environment by looking back through their fishing history and coastal heritage, and ahead to the future. The project was carried out between July 2018 – June 2019 by artist Julie Adamson Miller.

About the East Coast Archives
The Eastern Shore Archives was founded in 2003 in response to the need to preserve the records of the Hosking General Store which had been donated to the Heritage Society when the building was dismantled. The Archives is the only formally recognized community institutional archive (as defined by the formal admission process of the Council of Nova Scotia Archives) east of Dartmouth within eastern Halifax Regional Municipality. It has achieved peer recognition for its establishment and is actively supported by local genealogists. The Archives is located in the former Upper Lakeville Community Hall. The hall is one of the local buildings moved to the Heritage Village where it was authentically restored on the exterior and renovated on the interior to create a modern archival facility.
