The Stones of Spring Garden Road

From the HFN Programme Committee:

Some of our HFN members may remember walking the quarries of Purcell’s Cove on a bone chilling day in November 2014 and again in November 2019 to visit the source of granite, dark sandstone, and slate used in the construction of prominent Halifax buildings. Heritage Trust NS went one step further and arranged a talk and walk along Spring Garden Road to examine its buildings to determine what type of stone was used and from where.

This 45 minute tour given by geologist, Dr Howard Donohoe, was recorded for YouTube and is available for all to view: The Stones of Spring Garden Road, a tour with Howard V. Donohoe Jr.
