DINE: A cup of fresh coffee or a night of fine dining, The Hydrostone Market has all the amenities to suit your plans.

 

TREAT YOURSELF:


This area is steeped in history (see below!), as it was one of the neighbourhoods most effected by the infamous Halifax Explosion, the largest man-made explosion prior to the development of nuclear weapons.

 

The History of the Hydrostone:
From the ashes of the catastrophic Halifax Explosion, which shattered the city’s North End on 6 December 1917, rose the Hydrostone District, a splendid example of an English-style garden suburb.
Completed in 1920, this well-preserved neighbourhood was designed according to the most-up-to-date yet practical principles of town planning. The buildings, all variations on the same architectural theme and all constructed with “Hydro-Stone” concrete blocks, are aesthetically arranged along each side of wide treed courts. The houses and landscape contribute to a remarkable sense of time and place. source
