Haliburton House Museum introduces and celebrates the contribution to the literary history of Nova Scotia (and by extension of Canada) of the author and humorist Thomas Chandler Haliburton. Haliburton, a lawyer and unrepentant Tory, is placed in the context of his times, thus providing understanding of the social, political, religious, and economic history of colonial Nova Scotia in the first half of the 19th century. Additionally, the site presents the history, natural history, and evolving architecture of “Clifton” estate.
