Liverpool is situated on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.  In the 17th century Europeans used the harbour for fur trading and by the 18th century it became the site of a small settlement named Lingley. Liverpool was raided in 1778 by the French and subsequently by the Americans.  Consequently  in 1779 built a battery for their own artillery and became the "Port of the Privateers" with the Lucy protecting her shores. By the turn of the nineteenth century Liverpool was known as one of the busiest seaports in Canada. During the War of 1812 Liverpool financed and manned many privateer vessels, including the Rover.
The weather in Liverpool has four seasons with winters not as extreme as in the surrounding province; cool and wet, with rain and some snow. Spring comes early and is sunny with rain and the flowers blooming by early April. Autumn is lengthy and beautiful with the lovely colours of fall, offers warm days and cool nights.  Summer season has flowers blooming early and long into the season. The beaches are endless; where the Atlantic washes the shores and the only footprints may be one's own.
The town of Liverpool offers a variety of historical landmarks and old-world, European architecture, as well as a New England kind of charm. Located in the centre of town is the Astor Theatre which is the oldest performing arts venue in Nova Scotia. Built in 1902 as part of the historic Town Hall, the theatre was known as the Liverpool Opera House. The Astor Theatre played host to Symphony Nova Scotia, the Royal Shakespeare Company and recently to Ben Heppner. It's high rounded ceilings and plaster walls make the Astor a wonderful place to enjoy concerts and plays.

But remember this.... those that come never want to leave
