While visiting the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia, don't miss the opportunity to visit the Barrington area. It is a hidden treasure of picturesque scenery, small town charm and hospitality, and a wealth of history.
There is something for everyone - beautiful beaches and rivers, picnic areas, walking trails, wonderful places to eat, museums and genealogy research assistance.
While in the Barrington area, be sure to visit the Cape Sable Historical Society. Whether you are researching local history, are interested in the people of the past or are researching your personal family history, we would love to help.
Whether you want to go to the top of the lighthouse, see what church was like in the late 1700's or try spinning wool at our museums there is something for all ages.
We look forward to meeting you!
