About Digby

The town is home to the Digby Neck Folk Festival, held every year on Canada Day weekend. The festival features a parade, live music and crafts from around the region. Digby was settled in 1750 by Johnathan Binney of Boston who had been granted land there by Governor Edward Cornwallis. He built his house at what is now known as Binneys Point (named after him) and began farming with his family on their new homestead which they named 'Binney's Farms'. In 1752 he sold it to Captain Thomas Webb who then sold it in turn to William Brownell for £1,000 pounds sterling in gold coinage (a large sum of money at that time). Brownell renamed the property "Brownells Gore" and divided up parcels of land among several new settlers including Jonathan Binney Jr., son of Johnathan Sr..
