With a well-stocked research library, countless history and genealogy files, and a rich artifact collection featuring over 14,000 photographs, the Dartmouth Heritage Museum is a fantastic resource for researchers of all ages!

To begin the research process, please complete the Research Request Form. Forms can be submitted by email to Shannon Baxter, our collections manager, at collections@dartmouthmuseum.ca, by post mail, or in-person at the Dartmouth Heritage Museum at 26 Newcastle St, Dartmouth. We encourage researchers to be as detailed as possible in their requests. A staff member will be in touch with you to discuss your request.

Additional Dartmouth Heritage Resources

We have been very fortunate here at the Dartmouth Heritage Museum to receive the full document regarding the Heritage Designation Proposal of Findlay School, now the Findlay Centre. This document was researched and written by Maura Donovan, and submitted by her and Denise Gray Cox.

Below is an example of the Findlay Community Centre Heritage Registration Proposal – a portion of what Dartmouth Heritage Museum offers:
