Old Sherbrooke Village is a typical Nova Scotian village
highlighting the period from 1860 to pre-World War I. It is the largest
such site in Nova Scotia, with more than 80 buildings, over 25 of them
open to the public. Located in the eastern part of the province, it was built on an economy of ship building, lumbering, and gold mining.
