Coldbrook

This settlement is located on the Cornwallis river approximately eight kilometres west of Kentville in central Nova Scotia. It was probably named after a place in Wales and was known as Cold Brook Station for a while after the railway was completed in 1869.

In 1792 an English farm "now known as Colebrook," was a stopping place on the road between Windsor and Annapolis. Because of the many convenient services and restaurants located here, it now functions as a popular service stop at the intersection of Highway 101 and Trunk 1. The nearby Provincial Park is the perfect place for a picnic or get together.

Fruit growing and processing are the main industries. Scotian Gold Cooperative, in the fruit processing business since 1912, opened a new plant in Coldbrook in September 1964.
