Digby is a town in western Nova Scotia which lies on the Annapolis Basin of the Bay of Fundy. The town is famous for its scallop fishing fleet. The area was settled in 1783 by the United Empire Loyalists under the leadership of Sir Robert Digby. The town became an important regional transportation center in the 1890s with the arrival of the Dominion Atlantic Railway. Trains connected with a serious of steamships such as the City of Monticello and later the SS Princess Helene. The tide in 8 hours pulls out over 30 feet depth of water, the most any place in the world leaving the boats temporarily stranded.
