Company Houses

HISTORIC BACKGROUND
The "company house" appeared during a boom in the coal industry in Nova Scotia which, at the turn of the twentieth century, saw hundreds of workers arriving daily to towns like Glace Bay. To offset the resulting housing crisis, companies constructed and rented out accommodations, deducting the rent directly from a worker's pay. Various styles, now privately owned, can still be seen in mining communities.


Other kits relating to this era:

New Aberdeen Colliery, ca. 1910
