Cape George

Cape George Professional Review and Guide

"Cape George was originally named Cape St. Louis, probably by Nicolas Denys, the noted diarist who was the French governor of this area in the middle of the sixteenth century. Denys resided for many years in Nova Scotia. In the late 1700s, Scottish settlers from the Pictou area moved into the Antigonish Highlands, which they found reminiscent of the old country. During the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalists also settled here. The Cape George region is made up of picturesque farming and fishing communities, crystal cliffs, and beautiful sandy beaches."
