The United Empire Loyalists of Remsheg; refugees from the American Revolution.

 

 

Before the French settlers arrived in this area, circa1700, Nova Scotia was inhabitated by the Mi'kmaq people.These native people were nomadic and named this place Remheg. Though there was a more permenent settlement after the Acadians expanded their families into the area, the Mi'kmaq people used Remsheg as seasonal site for fishing, hunting and gathering shellfish. Research suggests the name Remsheg stood for "a place between". A site between the larger Mi'kmaq villages at Pugwash, Malagash and Tatamagouche.
