Hall’s Harbour Wharf is located in Hall’s Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada. It consists of an outer timber crib/armour stone breakwater originally constructed in 1904 to protect the inner harbour and to serve as a functioning wharf. In the Bay of Fundy area, wharfs are subjected to splash and tidal zones, as well as an average temperature fluctuation of -35C and +35C. These conditions make this are one of the harshest in all of the Maritimes. In 1998, the middle section of the wharf collapsed during a winter storm and the community decided upon the use of innovative technologies to produce a rehabilitation scheme which would be extremely durable and thereby reduce the long-term burden of frequent repairs.
