The project has documented over 70 sites in Melita that
possess heritage characteristics.
For each site we have taken photos and attempted to determine the
origins and significance of the site, as well as noting,
record, architectural, material and design details.
Each site has been placed on a map and any old photos or other
documentation unearthed is included in the file.
In some cases other
resources have been identified.
The Special Places Concept...
Places Projects were developed by the Historic Resources Branch as a
method of creating Community Inventories of Heritage Resources and
subjecting the sites to an analysis process that will help communties
protect and use their heritage resources to best advantage. I
piloted the first projects in 5 communities in 2008.
communities develop the necessary processes, protocols and products
will lead to a deeper appreciation and celebration of local heritage.
will also put in place the messages and frameworks that will initiate
community into the kind of sophisticated dialogue that defines heritage
in the 21st century.
