 Bridgewater, Nova Scotia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The town was founded in 1899, shortly after suffering a fire which devestated the entire downtown area.
For much of the 20th century, the town's economy depended on forestry and a large wood mill in the center of town, as well as the railway, for which the town acted as a central hub for the South Shore region.
After the wood mill closed, a period of bust followed until a new Michelin plant opened within town limits in the early 1970s, providing employment for some 1,000 people.
