Settlers artifactsFrom 1750-1752, settlers were enlisted from Germany, Switzerland and the principality of Montbeliard to settle in Nova Scotia. These immigrants came to be known as the Foreign Protestants who, shortly after their arrival in Halifax, settled in Lunenburg County.

This gallery displays many of the artifacts used by the early settlers, as well as a selection of pieces by Alice Egan Hagen (1872-1972), who lived the latter part of her life in Mahone Bay, and is considered to be a pioneer of studio pottery in Nova Scotia.
