"Government House Halifax is the home of the Sovereign’s representative in the Province of Nova Scotia and the ceremonial home of all Nova Scotians. It has also served as a home away from home for members of the Royal Family over its two-century history. Government House Halifax: A Place of History and Gathering tells the story of this historic building. Beginning with its construction in 1800 and continuing through its extensive renovations in 2009, this sumptuous book tells the story of the building’s royal residents, the household staff, and the momentous — and occasionally amusing — events which have transpired within its walls. Christopher McCreery ... guides readers through the building, including the state rooms and its hidden secrets, and introduces readers to important works of art held at Government House as part of the Crown Collection. McCreery’s text is amply illustrated by an extraordinary collection of images, including historic drawings and paintings along with modern photographs."--
