This building was constructed in 1877 to replace the original Provincial Normal School, which was established in 1855. In 1909, the school's name was changed to the Nova Scotia Normal College and the building was used as a teacher's college until 1961. It is presently home to the Colchester Y.M.C.A.

A good example of the Second Empire Period, the building at one time had a cupola and turret, until 1951 when it was destroyed by lightning.
