History of the East River Valley of Pictou County
The first human inhabitants along the lower areas of the East River Valley were the aboriginal Mi'kmaq. These First Nations people settled the coastal areas along the Northumberland Strait and wintered inland on most of the major rivers in Pictou County including the East River.
