In the 1860s, timber tall ships and gold ruled life along the St. Mary’s River, turning the community of Sherbrooke into a prosperous boom town. Today, the picturesque village still stands proud, just as it did more than 100 years ago.
At Sherbrooke Village, every day is a trip back in time as Nova Scotia’s 19th century heritage is brought to life by costumed interpreters, including blacksmiths, potters, weavers and printers. Whether you’re curious to try your hand at quilting or would like your picture taken at Canada’s only Ambrotype glass photo studio, our activities, learning camps for children and adults, and schedule of special events make it easy to get your hands on history all summer long! Join us on Facebook for regular updates.
