heritage: Tony Ince, the minister of African Nova Scotia Affairs, announced the designation under the Heritage Property Act during a ceremony Tuesday at Beechville Baptist Church, according to CTV. A developer has proposed a subdivision in the area, and the community had sought the heritage designation. The settlement in Beechville contains land plots settled by black refugees during the War of 1812. The province says it will ensure the defining elements of the site's character are preserved for future generations. Ince said the heritage recognition acknowledges the settlement's ties to the African Nova Scotian community and a place that contributes to our province's shared history. According to the Beechville Baptist Church web site, the first Black Loyalists arrived in 1816, and the province granted the refugees 1,000 acres of land. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
