Minudie is a community in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, located in Cumberland County about 5 miles (8.0 km) from River Hebert. Once a thriving town with a population peaking about 1870 at more than 600 people, Minudie today still has three churches but a population of just 20. Industries included shipbuilding, farming, lumbering and the manufacture of grindstones. It was founded by Amos Seaman (1788-1864), the self-appointed "Grindstone King" who began the manufacture of grindstones there about 1826 and who was also largely responsible for the rest of the industries there as well.[1]
