Digby is a town in southwestern Nova Scotia, Canada. It is the administative centre and largest population centre in Digby County. The town is situated on the western shore of the Annapolis Basin near the entrance to Digby Gut, which connects the basin to the Bay of Fundy.Named after Admiral Robert Digby, RN, the town is famous for its scallop fishing fleet and the MV Fundy Rose ferry service connecting to Saint John, New Brunswick.HistoryDigby was called Oositookun, meaning ear of land by the Mi'kmaq band government. A small group of New England Planters settled in the area of the town in the 1760s naming it Conway. However Digby was formally settled and surveyed as a town in June 1783 by the United Empire Loyalists under the leadership of Sir Robert Digby.The town developed a sizable shipping fleet in the 19th century. One famous Digby vessel was the brigantine Dei Gratia, which discovered the famous mystery ship Mary Celeste in 1872. The town became an important regional transportation centre in the 1890s with the arrival of the Dominion Atlantic Railway. Trains connected with a series of steamships such as the City of Monticello and later the SS Princess Helene.
