I just read your page and note that Dave Rhyno mentioned about Cedar Lake.  Why should Cedar Lake be left out of your Yarmouth villages and towns.  Cedar Lake falls in the two counties of Yarmouth and Digby and has a rich history.  You should try and contact a Mrs. Anne Sorenson who can give you a wealth of information on Cedar Lake.  Lets see Cedar Lake listed with his historical values.

Thank you!

Thank you for your letters.

Someone will have to provide information on this area as others did for other villages.
If you or anyone else has pictures or information that you can share please send it to webmaster@yarmouth.org.
On the subject line please write the name of the village.   In this case Cedar Lake.

I will include it on this page.

Yours Sincerely

Comments: Hello Yarmouth.It's nice to see you on line as they call it.I am not from yarmouth but my husband is and we did live there for a long time. He is from Port Maitland.We also lived in Cedar Lake for a few years.We try to get back when we can and my husband misses it so.What we do miss is walking on the beach,for there is no place like that up here.you can't find a quiet place for a picnic or listen to the waves hit the shore or even hear the birds singing, just too many cars & people.we have been wanting to stay at the grand hotel for years but never did oh well maybe someday. We have a 28th anniversary comming up on March 15th a week in yarmouth sounds wonderfull. We do keep in touch with relatives and friends ,and from time to time i'll drop you a line ok. Bye for now Yarmouth   MARY J
