Sherbrooke Village is about 150 miles northeast of Halifax, near the coast. It’s a very special place to visit. However, since there are no accommodations in the area, we stopped for a couple of hours to tour it on our way to our next stop and were glad we did.
Sherbrooke Village depicts a typical Nova Scotian village from 1860 to World War I. With 80 buildings, 25 of which are open to the public most with costumed interpreters, it is the largest Nova Scotia Museum site. What is quite unique is that this is the original location of these buildings. In the transition from village to historical museum, some property owners didn’t want to sell or move, so they live in the midst of Sherbrooke Village.
