Welcome to Halifacts!


Halifacts was established in July 2014 when a passion for Halifax history was put into action. A Twitter brand was created and Haligonians responded. We’re now online with Facebook, a column with Haligonia, and this website (obviously).

Our goal is to provide more than just old photos or old wives tales. We want to find the most interesting parts of our city’s history that can apply to what we see around us every day.

We’re in the early stages of our development, but we appreciate your support. Have a look throughout this first version of our website and let us know what you think with comments or emails!
