D’Arcy O’Connor - Oak Island in background

Mr. O’Connor is a well-known, prolific Oak Island author and researcher who has written four important and well received books about the famous Island and its treasure hunt. Mr. O’Connor generously donated this large collection of materials to the Chester Municipal Heritage Society. It represents many years or research in archives, conducting interviews with treasure hunters, partners, witnesses, on site observations, and some unique, original materials not to be found elsewhere.

It is our hope that people around the world can access these materials freely to further their understanding of this fascinating piece of Nova Scotia history and the famous Oak Island Mystery.

For those who desire or require an original and/or un-watermarked copy of any item for a school project, writing a book, treasure hunting or for any other reason, please contact Danny Hennigar at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please respect our desire to keep this collection publically available for everyone and give credit where credit is due.  Any unauthorized duplication of this collection or portion thereof without written consent is prohibited.

We hope to post more collections and add to these research materials as opportunity permits.

chester heritage societyCHMS is a registered not-for-profit organization which has been in existence since 1981.  All members of the Society are volunteers as there are no paid staff.  The Society operates the Chester Train Station, Lordly House Museum, Maple Cottage (which is a research centre and the first Municipal office), Lordly Park, and a children’s playground. All of which are open to the public.

The Society does not receive government funding other than monies received through grant applications.  The Society’s archives are available to the general public and it continues to collect and catalogue information from all areas of the municipality.

Your support, through memberships and donations, is what makes this possible. Without public support the Society would not be able to continue its work. Please consider donating to the Society to aid in our efforts to bring the past alive for future generations.
