Custodial history

The items contained in the first accession were part the Grindstone Museum set up by Herbert C. Read in the “Carriage House” of the Marshlands Inn. In the mid-1980s Mr. Read dismantled the display and donated its contents to the Town of Sackville. These items were then passed on to the Tantramar Heritage Trust in January 1999, along with various Read Stone Co. artifacts.

Items in the second accession were donated to the Tantramar Heritage Trust by Alice Read on December 12, 2006.

Read in the “Carriage House” of the Marshlands Inn, which includes various materials pertaining to the Read Stone Company and grindstone production, including primarily photographs, as well as graphic drawings, newspaper clippings, and other textual records.
