After the decline of Nova Scotia\'s apple industry in the 1950s, Sheffield Mills farmers diversified, with many setting up poultry farms. Discarded waste from poultry barns attracted large numbers of Bald Eagles to winter in the area in the 1980s which has led to an annual winter weekend of Eagle spotting.

53 Margaretsville Lighthouse Beaches & Lighthouses Latitude: 45.050083, Margaretsville, Nova Scotia The Margaretsville Lighthouse was built in 1859 as the town was an important transportation hub, being connected to Saint John by steamship and to various parts of Nova Scotia by rail. The lighthouse, a square wooden tower with sloping sides, was built in the common pepper-shaker style and stands 9.4 meters high with a wide black horizontal stripe. The black stripe is the only such daymark in all of Nova Scotia. William Early supervised construction of the lighthouse and then served as its first keeper from 1859 to 1887. William lived in a residence about one kilometer distance from the tower, which was troublesome during foul weather. After William\'s son John took over as keeper in 1887, quarters were established on the second floor for the convenience of the keeper. John Early continued as keeper until his death in 1907, after which his wife Ruth took over responsibility of the light for another three years. Gordon Aldred was the final keeper of the light, serving from 1956 to 1963, when electricity replaced the original oil lamp and the light was automated. There is little fishing activity at the wharf in Margaretsville these days, but the Coast Guard still maintains the light to help the fishing vessels and large gypsum boats from Hantsport that frequent the nearby waters. The 150th anniversary of the lighthouse was celebrated on October 24th, 2009, with a harvest supper, displays of memorabilia, and an anniversary cake-cutting ceremony.
52 Lighthouse on Cape d'Or Beaches & Lighthouses 45 17\' 00 \ Before automation, two lighthouse keepers manned the light on rocky Cape d'Or, and their cottages have been transformed into a small inn with unparalleled views of the Minas Basin. Guest rooms are basic and only one has an en suite bath, but there's a welcoming common area with a breakfast bar, books, games, and a small refrigerator, and there's an excellent restaurant on-site (closed Wednesday). Although getting here is challenging—follow the road (locally known as the Cape Road) off Highway 209 from Advocate Harbour, then park and walk down a steep gravel path (locally known as the Road to Whistle)—the wild beauty repays your effort. 400 Cape Dor Rd, Diligent River, NS 902-670-0534

44 Evangeline Beach Beaches & Lighthouses Evangeline Beach Rd, Kings County, Nova Scotia, Canada This beach has amazing views, but don\'t go there for a day trip unless you are staying at the hotel, or at one of the private cottages. Otherwise, there is NO ACCESS to the beach for the public, unless you want to climb down about 15 feet of huge boulders to get to the beach from the parking lot. I arrived there with my 2 year old to find that it was nearly impossible to get to it with her in my arms. I scraped my legs to bits on the rocks and had to make several trips up and down with her and toys, shoes, etc. And there are no facilities whatsoever to wash your feet off as because this is not really a sandy beach, its a mud beach. My baby loved it, but left a big mess in our car when it was time to leave. All in all, beautiful views, amazing warm temperature when the tide comes in, and warm squishy mud, but I won\'t go back unless they build some stairs, or at least a reasonable path for the public to get to the beach.
43 Walton Lighthouse Beaches & Lighthouses 119 Lorne Smith Road, Walton, Nova Scotia, Canada The Walton Lighthouse is the last original lighthouse in Hants County. It was built in 1873 by Timothy Parker at a cost of $620. It was once the brightest light on the Minas Basin in the upper Bay of Fundy. Over the years it guided ships into Walton port where they loaded cargoes of pulpwood, gypsum and barite. Walton Harbour was the busiest port in Nova Scotia in the 1950\'s. The shipping declined in the 1970\'s and the lighthouse was decommissioned. It was purchased by the Municipality of East Hants and declared a heritage property in 1992. It is currently maintained by the non-profit organization WADA, Walton and Area Development Association.
42 Spencer Island Lighthouse Beaches & Lighthouses Spencer\'s Beach Road, Spencers Island, Nova Scotia The Spencer’s Island Lighthouse is a wooden lighthouse that stands approximately 10.5 metres tall.

41 Hampton Lighthouse Beaches & Lighthouses Follow Highway 101 through Annapolis Valley; exit (20) onto old Highway 1 (Granville Street) towards Bridgetown. Turn right in Bridgetown on Church Street and follow over North Mountain to an intersec John Titus had the contract to build the Hampton Lighthouse. It was built November 1911 by Joseph Marshall on a parcel of land bought from Lloyd Brooks. When it was built it had a kerosene lamp that had to be lit each night at sunset and extinguished at daylight. The lightkeeper lived in his own house in he village. Supplies such as oil about 5 or 6 ( 45 gal. drums), brooms, rags, maps, paint, pails, soaps, etc. were brought by ship once a year, usually in June by the buoy boat \"Dallard\". She would heave to about a mile offshore then a large tender or walk boat with about 20 sailors, mostly French, would bring the supplies ashore. If it was low tide they would land on the beach, use planks to roll the oil drums up on, and roll them all the way up the hill to the lighthouse. If it were high tide or if they could come along side the wharf, they would parbuckle the oil filled drums onto the wharf and roll them up the hill. The light was changed to electric in the 1940\'s.
40 Five Islands Lighthouse Beaches & Lighthouses At Five Islands, on the shore in the Sand Point Campground The Five Islands Lighthouse Preservation Society was formed in 1996.

39 Burntcoat Head Lighthouse Beaches & Lighthouses Burntcoat Head lies on the south side of the entrance to Cobequid Bay. A seemingly minor incident is the source of the name: a farmer\'s coat caught fire after he left a pipe in his pocket! The lighthouse at Burntcoat Head was detroyed by the Coast Guard in 1972, when it was replaced by skeleton mast. Erosion had washed away much of teh land on which the building stood. Many citizens of Burntcoat Head wished to see the lighthouse standing once again, overlooking the highest tides in the world!
