Blockhouse & Area
Blockhouse was named after the blockhouses made to protect the pioneers. Following the 1756 raid on Lunenburg, Governor Lawrence sought to protect the area by establishing blockhouses at the LaHave River, Mush-a-Mush (present day Mahone Bay) and at the Northwest Range (present day Blockhouse, Nova Scotia). Today, Blockhouse is home to the only Waldorf-focused School in the Atlantic provinces. Visit the beauty and take a family day to explore this area.
