|Information||In the 1860s, timber, tall ships, and gold brought prosperity to Sherbrooke’s people. Today, you can explore this amazing village and tour its original buildings, to experience life as it was along the St. Mary’s River before the 1900s.
With apx. 80 buildings, over 25 of which are open to the public (most with costumed interpreters), it is the largest Nova Scotia Museum site.
Hear tales about the village as the friendly village interpreters bring history to life. Watch sparks fly as the blacksmith’s hammer hits the anvil and see the weaver’s nimble hands at the loom. Sherbrooke Village depicts a typical Nova Scotian village from 1860 to pre-WW1.
