Nestled between the North and South Mountain, the Annapolis River flows southwest through the heart of the Annapolis Valley from its starting point in Caribou bog, located near Berwick, Nova Scotia. This river runs for 120 km before it empties into the Annapolis Basin near the town of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. The land on either side of the river is considered some of the most productive agricultural land in the province. This style of farmhouse and surrounding barns are a common sight along the Annapolis River - a lifeline for the farmers choosing to dwell along it.
