Description
Meaning “place where wild potatoes grow,” Shubenacadie (shoo-ben-ack-a-dee) is in a district that has always been the home of the Mi'kmaq Indians of central Nova Scotia. In 1737 Abbé le Loutre, sent by the Society of Foreign Missions, established their headquarters and built an Indian mass house; the cemetery still is visible.
Pottery crafted by Mi'kmaq Indians from Shubenacadie clay has been discovered throughout the province. A local industry still uses the clay. Dairying and lumbering also are historically associated with the area.
