Gore, Nova Scotia
Gore is a Canadian rural community in central Hants County, Nova Scotia. It is named after Sir Charles Stephen Gore. The village was settled primarily by the 84th Regiment of Foot (Royal Highland Emigrants).
Primarily a farming district in the Rawdon Hills, Gore is home to Environment Canada's Doppler weather radar station "XGO". It was once home to the East Hants Courthouse that stood on the community's "Courthouse Hill" for 90 years until it burnt down in 1956. The courthouse was never rebuilt but today there is a memorial that marks the place where the courthouse once stood.
