Halifax's Kenny/Dennis building, built in 1863-64, is one of the half-dozen surviving heritage buildings which complement and uplift Province House, and it anchors the remaining heritage position which exists along the northern section of the Granville block. This alone makes its retention of great importance. However, its direct lineage through the Kenny and the Dennis families, and the importance of the architects who worked on it, make it of high provincial significance.
On 28 February, 2018, we filed a third-party application for municipal heritage registration. On 11 June, 2018, we filed a parallel third-party application for provincial heritage registration. These applications were supported with our Heritage Assessment Report on the building.
