Wolfville

Nova Scotia

Once a hunting ground for First Nations people, around 1680, Wolfville and nearby Grand Pré became home to Acadians who skilfully constructed dykes to hold back the waters of the Minas Basin, thus creating rich pastures for livestock and fertile fields for crops.

Today, Wolfville is a thriving university town, home of Acadia University, founded in 1838. It has been declared Canada’s first Fair Trade Town for its commitment to fair trade coffees and teas. With local award-winning vineyards, restaurants committed to local products and a busy farmers’ market housed in a former apple warehouse on the former rail line, Wolfville is a popular destination in Nova Scotia. Visitors can learn more about the town’s history at Historic Randall House, operated by the Wolfville Historical Society.
