Jill Amery is the publisher of Urban Mommies Media and was born and bred on the East Coast of Canada. Jill recently visited Halifax, Nova Scotia and takes us on a video journey around the Historic Properties (aka Privateer’s Wharf) to see all the sights and sounds of a busy East Coast city, and learn a little Canadian history as well!

Did you know that the Historic Properties are warehouses on the Halifax Boardwalk that began to be constructed during the Napoleonic Wars by various Nova Scotian businessmen/privateers/smugglers. These privateers helped make Halifax extremely prosperous during Canada’s early years. There are currently 7 designated National historic sites located at Privateer’s Wharf, as well as many other of the cities oldest buildings.
