An historic district with exceptional views of the 3rd best natural harbour in the world
Discover Shelburne's Historic Waterfront
10 blocks wide and centuries deep in heritage, architecture and legends. Imagine: arriving with 10,000 others from New York and the American Revolution. Clearing the land, struggling to survive and thrive. Becoming a citizen of this 18th Century Loyalist town as it flourishes as a major shipbuilding and fishing centre!
Witness the age of sail as it wanes and gives way to a new era that would change the face of the historic waterfront forever: Hollywood!
Electrical cables were buried and buildings were refurbished or erected when films such as The Scarlet Letter were filmed on the waterfront over 20 years ago.
