Marshalltown is a rural community located just west of Digby, on Digby Neck, an isthmus of Nova Scotia, Canada, between the Bay of Fundy and Saint Mary's Bay. There was once an almshouse and poor farm. Marshalltown was the birthplace of Samuel Edison, father of Thomas Edison (1847-1931), and it was also the home of folk artist Maud Lewis (1903-1970) from 1938 until her death.
