In 1997, a group of concerned citizens took steps to preserve the former property of Charles and Mabel Macdonald in Centreville, Nova Scotia. As a result "The Charles Macdonald House of Centreville Society" was formed.
Charles Macdonald is widely known as Nova Scotia's Uncommon, Common Man.
The Charles Macdonald Concrete House Museum contains and exhibits the life works of Charles and Mabel Macdonald.
WHAT WE DO
As a member of The Association of Nova Scotia Museums we receive a small grant from the province to help maintain our property and to share Charlie's legacy with the public during the summer months. Provincial and Federal grants allow us to employ students as museum/gallery guides
Located in Centreville, on the road to Hall's Harbour, Nova Scotia's third most visited tourist destination, we've enlightened visitors from around the world for almost 25 years.
Board of Directors:
Kevin West (Chairperson), Fred Macdonald (Vice Chairperson), Elisha Harper (Secretary/Treasurer), Alison Scott Butler, Terry Drahos, Andrew Hurst, and Geof Turner.
