Yarmouth, although it has earlier history, was named in 1759 by settlers who came from a settlement by the same name in Massachusetts. In the nineteenth century, it became a major shipbuilding centre, and for at least part of the century was supposedly the richest small town in the world. Subsequently, it became a railway centre of some note.
These days, it’s a tourist centre although that has declined a bit this year as the ferry service from Maine has been discontinued. The good news is that some sort of service is projected to resume again next year. Read more about the town.
I could certainly glimpse much of Yarmouth’s historical glory as we strolled about the town in the form of its wonderful, old mansions
Did you see the fantastic Widow's Walk in that last photo?
Also, I thought I'd include the following buildings. The first is The Saints' favourite restaurant, Rudders, where we had a fine meal on the night of our arrival. The second is a house converted into a shop that Cuppa truly appreciated and helped to keep solvent through this down turn.
