Cambridge is a community on the Cornwallis River in Kings County, Nova Scotia, Canada, located 12 kilometres west of Kentville. It is administratively part of the village of Cornwallis Square. The community was named for Cambridge, Massachusetts. [2]

Cambridge is rapidly expanding and developing as the local focus swings from agriculture to housing developments.[citation needed]
