The Marshalltown Almshouse-Digby Tonight at the Library

Hi All! I will be at the Isaiah W. Wilson Digby Library, 84 Warwick Street, tonight at 6 pm to talk about poorhouses in Nova Scotia and, particularly, the Marshalltown Almshouse just outside of Digby.

This is the poor farm that got me interested in researching all the poor houses in Nova Scotia. I hope you can make it and want to discuss these fascinating and sad places of our history.
