    Who wouldn't vote for such a pretty representative

    It's always fun to visit the Leg building when you happen to be in a provincial capital because it's a great - and free - way to learn more about the province's history and current state. Unfortunately they were doing a bit of restauration to the building during our stay in Halifax so there were a few rooms we didn't have access to, but we still enjoyed visiting Nova Scotia's Province House. Built between 1811 and 1818, it is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture and it is now a National historic site. Your tour guide will point you to several symbols that represent the province's heritage and identity - ask your tour guide about the beheaded bald eagles, that's a funny one!
