"Sackville, Halifax's first outpost, was settled in 1749 when Edward Cornwallis established a fort at the 'head of the basin' against the the threat of the French and their Mi'kmaw allies. When more peaceful times arrived in the late 1750s, thirty-two grants of five hundred acres were allotted to entrepreneurs, who saw the prospect of economic activity and profit in the timber-rich hinterland, and to ordinary folk, who saw the Sackville River valley as a place to carry out subsistence farming. These grants, collectively called the 'farm lots,' would shape the growth and development of the community of Sackville for over two hundred years.

In the early days, Sackville was always on the way to somewhere else since a network of communities sprang up along the two main roads - the Cobequid (Truro) road and the Windsor Road - connecting Halifax and mainland Nova Scotia. More recently, Sackville has become a provincially initiated satellite community serving the housing needs of the metropolitan Halifax area.

Historic Sackville traces the gradual evolution of a cohesive farming community into a sprawling suburban one. Its collection of historic photographs of pioneer families, their activities, architecture, and celebrations is a reminder of the community's vital heritage, and its significant place in the development of the region." - rear cover.
