In mid-November 2013, friends and students gathered at Shobac in Upper Kingsburg, Nova Scotia to help raise the 1830 Chebogue schoolhouse which has been moved, adapted, and repurposed on the farm of Brian MacKay-Lyons. Similar to a traditional “barnraising,” this was a joining of community with a clear goal in mind. Some photos and a time-lapse video of the raising can be seen below. Be sure to check back for more updates on the Chebogue schoolhouse as the progress continues.
