A treasure hunt was staged at Fort Edward National Historic Site in Windsor. Although only a few children participated in the event, those that did had the chance to explore the historic grounds to uncover clues while learning about the former military post.
One such family was the Rector family from Clementsport. Brad Rector said his wife, Sandra, and children, Corin, Rhys, Anson, and Bria, spent the summer visiting various historical locations in the province. He said it was the “summer of introducing kids to local history and seeing what's in our backyard.”
The site dates back to 1750 and features walking trails that are well-used by local residents. The blockhouse, located at 67 Fort Edward St., has been a national historic site since 1921. There is no entrance fee.
Parks Canada, in association with the West Hants Historical Society, provide a summer tour guide for visitors.
