Event description

Description

On December 6, 1917, during the height of the First World War, two ships trying to navigate Halifax Harbor collided resulting in the largest man-made explosion of the pre-atomic age.

Essex Heritage Trustee, David Read, will recount the events leading up to this devastating tragedy and the impressive Massachusetts rescue effort. Relive the personal stories and riveting details of the weeks that followed – and learn about the most important train to ever travel through Essex County.

Join us on the 100th anniversary of this historic day and learn why the citizens of Nova Scotia still send a special gift of appreciation each year!
