Name of creator
The Dartmouth Grace United Church was built in 1853 at the intersection of Octerloney and King in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The original structure was destroyed in the Halifax Explosion in December 1917 and rebuilt in 1920. Previously known as the Dartmouth Wesleyan and the Grace Methodist, the church was renamed the Grace United in 1925 after the formation of the United Church of Canada. The church has been associated with social and charitable societies including the Women’s Missionary Society of the United Church and the Ladies’ Aid Society.
Fonds donated in 1976 by Carl Ritcey of Halifax.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of a Women's Missionary Society treasurer's book (1928-1933), an historical sketch of the church during the years 1853-1953, Calendar Club account books (1926-1928 and 1929-1933); and a Ladies’ Aid minute book (1929-1934).
