sherbrooke-village-winter-2013Step back in time at Sherbrooke Village – visit a place where time has stood still in Nova Scotia’s history, the industrial boom of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The vibrant museum village is located along the shores of the beautiful St. Mary’s River. Sherbrooke Village depicts a typical Nova Scotian village from 1860 to pre-WWI. With approximately 80 buildings, over 25 of those open to the public, it is the largest Nova Scotia Museum site. Visit the woodturner shop, blacksmith, pottery shop, ambrotype photography studio and printery.
