Summary note
Every corner of Nova Scotia is rich in tradition and lore, but perhaps no area is richer than Shelburne County. The Chestnut Pipe is a valuable record of life and it once was in southwestern Nova Scotia, a vital compendium of the legends, superstitions, remedies, games, and speech that mixed and mingled over centuries to give Shelburne County a unique and vibrant culture.
