Sherbrooke Village Museum portrays life in Nova Scotia in the industrial boom time of the late C19th. The settlement was established at the head of navigable water on St Mary's River in an economy dominated by shipbuilding, lumber, and gold mining. The arrival of the highway caused the core of the town to shift a little way upstream to the lowest bridging point on the river. The original village (in which some houses are still residences) became a Restoration Area in 1969.
