Greenwich, Nova Scotia
The community is bordered to the south by the Wolfville Ridge, immediately west of the town of Wolfville and east of the village of New Minas. It is also bordered on the north by the south bank of the Cornwallis River, opposite the village of Port Williams.
The community has hosted Horton High School in two different locations since 1959.
Greenwich has a population of approximately 300 people. Water, sewer, hydrant, street-lights, bus transit and sidewalk services make this hamlet a desirable rural residential area within easy access of both New Minas and Wolfville. Greenwich is also served by a volunteer fire department.
Greenwich has been primarily agricultural in nature since being first settled by families including the Bishop and Forsyth families, who settled here in 1760 as New England Planters; both of these families still farm in Greenwich today. Five farm markets in this small community make it the destination of choice for in-season produce in Kings County. Hennigar's, one of the oldest farm markets in the province, opened in 1921. Elderkin's Farm Market, located on Broadview Farms - one of the first farms created when Greenwich was settled - has been family owned and operated since 1760. Noggins Corner Farm Market is on the site of Timothy and William Bishop's farm and is run by members of the Bishop family.
