History of the Bluenose Curling Club

The Bluenose Curling Club was established in 1853, making it the 3rd oldest club in the province and 16th oldest in Canada.  For the first 20 years, curling was done outdoors on the harbour and on various ponds and inlets.  The first indoor facility was opened in 1874.  Artificial ice was not available until 1937 at the North Provost Street location.  For 30 years, beginning in 1968, the Club operated out of a joint facility with the Abercrombie Golf Club in Abercrombie, just outside of New Glasgow.  The Club is presently operating in its 5th location, a 4-sheet facility on Park Street, New Glasgow, built in 1990.

An interesting, detailed history is available here.

For more than 13,000 years the Mi’kmaq have called this beautiful land home, enriching Nova Scotia with legends, art, music, spirituality, history, and language. Bluenose Curling Club is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People, and we acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq Welastekwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact, recognized Mi’kmaq and Welastekwiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. We are all Treaty people. Mi’kma’ki includes all of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, part of New Brunswick, the Gaspé region of Quebec, part of Maine, and southwestern Newfoundland.
