The Province House is one of the finest examples of 19th-century Georgian architecture in all of North America and was the first legislature in a British colony to win local self-government. After Charles Dickens visited the Nova Scotia legislature in 1842, he wrote 'it was like looking at Westminster through the wrong end of a telescope.'
