Annapolis Valley

Annapolis Valley is an area of Nova Scotia located between the Bay of Fundy and central Nova Scotia, Canada. Blessed with plenty of sunshine, it is famous for its annual apple crop. It is home to Acadia University in Wolfville. Much of the area was first occupied by Acadians until they were expelled by the British in 1755. The town of Grand Pre was and continues to be a centre of Acadian culture and was the setting of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Evangeline. Since then it has most been settled by British immigrants, United Empire Loyalists and "Foreign Protestants".
