Louisbourg Navy League Hut (A Provincial Heritage Property)

William A. O’Shea 

In May 1994 the Louisbourg Navy League building was designated a Provincial Heritage Property. Cecil Grant, President, and Michael Burke, Past President, of the Louisbourg & Area Lions Club recognized the heritage value of the Lions Den, formerly the Louisbourg Navy League Hostel. At a meeting held in 1993, I explained the process to the Lions Club membership. As a result, the Lions asked the Louisbourg Heritage Society to prepare the application to the Advisory Council on Heritage Property.
