Village of Port Williams

Biggest Little Port in the World

The residents of Port Williams enjoy life in a thriving and picturesque Village. An agricultural community with excellent schools, continuous residential growth, business opportunities, fine recreational facilities, easy access to all amenities, all surrounded by the beauty of Minas Basin tides and dyke lands. Its history is rich with the legacy of the Mi'kmaq, Acadians, and Planters. Its future is bright with the promise of those who choose to live, work and raise their families here.

Port Williams 2Port Williams is located in Kings County, Nova Scotia, between and to the north, of the towns of Wolfville and Kentville. The Village area comprises all the land between the Canard and Cornwallis Rivers, extending approximately two miles east to Starr's Point and two miles west to Tiny Parish Road.

Visitors may reach the village via Nova Scotia Highway 101 west from Halifax or east from Yarmouth at Exit 11. Signs for Prescott House Museum and Blomidon Park are located at this intersection.

The parking area before the bridge at the entrance to Port Williams offers an excellent opportunity to view the Minas Basin tides facing the old wharf which was once a hub of activity (see History). Tourists and residents often choose to enter the pathway to the dyke at this point and enjoy the flora, fauna and salt air of the marsh and dykeland.
