"Art Happening is moving on. We are so, SO grateful to the community, everyone who volunteered, everyone who came out to Art Happening events, everyone who came through our doors to create something; the magic we made together is always going to be with us. Thank you all. Due to the challenges of maintaining a physical location during the pandemic, we are giving up our home on King Street, but we plan to continue fostering art that is happening on the South Shore. Art will Happen. Please stay in touch and we'll do the same. With love and gratitude, The Team at Art Happening Bridgewater"

Wile Carding Mill Museum
242 Victoria Road
Bridgewater, Nova Scotia
Phone: 902-543-8233
From 1860 to 1968, this water-powered mill lightened the workload for Nova Scotian farm families by carding a week’s worth of wool in one hour! See the very machine that revolutionized carding in the area and imagine the clatter as it prepared wool for bedding and spinning. Step outside and picture the line of ox carts that would wait patiently as women operators processed loads of sheep fleece. Open seasonally. --Wile Carding Mill will remain closed to the public until further notice. (2023-07-28) --
