Africville was a close knit community on the shores of the Bedford Basin until it was relocated. The Africville Heritage Trust was created to oversee the creation of a fitting memorial to Africville. The first step in this process was the re-construction of the Seaview Baptist Church, which was completed in the fall of 2011. The church is presently being used to house exhibits and audio-visual kiosks which tell the story of Africville.
The museum is seeking candidates interested in gaining summer work experience within a community museum setting.
