The Chronicle Herald's website, http://thechronicleherald.ca/Metro/1255237.html has a notice today that “A historic north-end Halifax park will officially be renamed Africville on Friday (July 29th).
In a ceremony to take place during the Africville Annual Festival / Reunion, Seaview Park will be no more after Mayor Peter Kelly and other dignitaries unveil a new sign. The event will take place at 1 pm.
The renaming is part of a deal reached between the city and the Africville Genealogy Society in 2010.
Future plans for Africville include a church museum, expected to open in the fall, and an interpretative centre”.
