Where History Meets Hospitality is a blog about all things Nova Scotian with significant focus on Shelburne & Shelburne County Areas of Nova Scotia's South Western Shore.

Learn about the history, the people and the synergies that make this place we call home...'home'. Sometimes it will be for too short visits. Other times it may be something more extended.

Our readers are invited to comment and add ideas and observations or perhaps be a guest contributor.

And perhaps you'll help us understand and explain the synergies that often contribute to the 'Calm' each of our lives  hopefully knows and appreciates.
