Elizabeth Bishop House designated as municipal heritage property

The Elizabeth Bishop House in Great Village has been designated as a municipal heritage property. 

The Truro Daily News reports the application from the society for designation as a Municipal Heritage Property was recently approved by Colchester County Council.

The house has already received provincial heritage status. 

Bishop was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American poet who lived in the home when she was young with her maternal grandparents. 

The Truro Daily News reports the home was made world famous through Bishop's writings, while it was also featured in a piece of prose she wrote titled The Village. 

The municipal heritage plaque is set to be officially mounted on June 23rd when the Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia holds its annual meeting.
