Hammonds Plains Nova Scotia



Hammonds Plains was established as a settlement area for United Empire Loyalists in 1786 along a road running from Birch Cove on Bedford Basin to St. Margaret’s Bay. Landowners voted to name the road after the popular outgoing Lt. Governor Andrew Snape Hamond.[2] Further settlers arrived with disbanded soldiers from the Napoleonic Wars and Black Refugees from the War of 1812. The settlement was also the eastern end of the Old Annapolis Road intended to create a settled corridor and transportation link between Halifax and Annapolis Royal. While the Annapolis Road never developed, settlement opened up the a modest amount of viable farmland and more significantly developed many saw mills.
