Camp Hill, Halifax


Camp Hill, Halifax

Camp Hill (also, formerly, "Wind Mill Hill"cite web| title = Plan of the proposed Halifax WaterWorks1845| work = | publisher = Halifax Municipal Archives| date = | url = http://www.halifax.ca/archives/HalifaxWaterWorks.html| format = | doi = | accessdate = 2008-10-09] ) is a small hill on the Halifax Peninsula, Nova Scotia. Historically, much of the hill was part of the Halifax Common, and is today home to a number of public institutions. The topography of the area has been greatly altered over time, with the construction of large hospital and high school buildings. The Camp Hill area is roughly enclosed within two city blocks; the Camp Hill Cemetery, and the block bounded by Robie Street, Summer Street, Bell Road, and Veterans Memorial Lane (originally the western terminus of Jubilee Road, renamed in 1999).
