Heritage Registration


Cushing Design Co. provides historical research and planning guidance for property owners wishing to register their house through Halifax Regional Municipality’s (HRM) Heritage Property Program. This report is compiled to meet the requirements of HRM’s Supplementary Documentation section of a registration application.


The purpose of the report is to:

  • determine the age of the building on the property and provide a site summary;

  • identify historical importance and ownership history; and,

  • identify any contextual relationships.


This research includes time to conduct archival research and involves a site visit to document the exterior of the building for the purpose of the report. 


Packages starting at: $550 excluding HST 

"As we spent more time in our house, we began to realize it was much older than first told. After struggling through our own research, we reached out to Elizabeth. Within a few weeks, she provided us with historical research that helped in narrowing the age of the house. That work greatly simplified the heritage application and designation process. We have and will continue to highly recommend Elizabeth and her services.”
