A quaint, little village, Tatamagouche radiates a palpable artistic and historical ambiance. In keeping with modern times, however, Tatamagouche is also a progressive and diversified community, boasting an impressive number of businesses and services.

This village is located on the Northumberland Strait, north of Truro. The name Tatamagouche is derived from the Mi’kmaq term “Takumegooch” which means, roughly translated, “meeting of the waters” as it’s the location where the Waugh and French Rivers run into a harbour. The first European settlers in the Tatamagouche area were the French Acadians, who settled there in the early 1700s, and Tatamagouche became a transshipment point for goods bound for Fortress Louisbourg. In 1755, the British expelled the Acadians from Nova Scotia and the village was destroyed. All that remains from that period are Acadian dykes and some French place names.

Tatamagouche is close to beautiful beaches, golf courses, and a ski hill, as well as being a destination for hunting, fishing, and off-road enthusiasts. Offering a wide range of things to see and do for our many visitors, as well as a long list of amenities to our residents, Tatamagouche is a self-sufficient and growing community. Whether you’re looking for a tourist destination or a place to put down roots, come and discover why Tatamagouche is just a great place to be.
