North Queens Heritage House interior 

 


This page is a stub.  You can help improve it.

Built in 1854, the Heritage House is one of the oldest homes in North Queens. Built by Milton Douglas (bc1826-1899), the son of John Douglas, one of the first settlers, this house is furnished with turn of the century artefacts with displays of logging history, archives on North Queens and local genealogy. A recent addition to the Heritage House is the NF Douglas Store Display.

The original NF Douglas store was a fixture in Caledonia for over 130 years. Generations of Douglas' manned this business which once was a general store and in later years a hardware store. When the hardware store changed hands and moved, an abundant collection of memorabilia, ledgers, records and merchandise was donated to the North Queens Heritage House and is now proudly displayed.


Location: 25 West Caledonia Road, Caledonia



John Douglas (born 12th January 1794 in Marlfield, Eckford Parish, Roxburghshire, Scotland) married Abigail Perkins Foster (born 1796) on December 11, 1817, Caledonia, Queens County, Nova Scotia. John Douglas landed in Halifax, Nova Scotia in June 1815 from Scotland.  He, the son of James Douglas of Eckford, Scotland and his wife Jane Mill, was one of the seven settlers who founded Caledonia, or seven hills as it was known then.

Milton's daughter, Mary Helen Douglas married William Alexander Baxter, senior, of Aberdeen, Scotland. Both lived in Caledonia, Nova Scotia.
