History of Yarmouth, NS:

A Personal View



I am a resident of Port Maitland, a small hamlet in Yarmouth County on the southwest coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. Although I have no formal historical training, I am interested in the history of the region in which I live, and so I have spent many pleasant hours studying historical records and artifacts at the Yarmouth County Museum and Archives, 22 Collins Street, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

This website contains collections of both photographs (PhotoGallery and Albums) and historical essays (LocalHistory). The focus is on events occurring in this area in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

If you have suggestions or criticisms, please send them to me, Bill Day.
