New Glasgow derives its name from Old Glasgow of Scotland. Deacon Thomas Fraser was the first settler to New Glasgow in 1784, and in 1809, its first trading post was built. George MacKenzie founded New Glasgow's first shipbuilding company, which would go on to build upwards of 34 ships. New Glasgow is located 158 km (98 mi.) northeast of Halifax along the north shore, as a result, hundreds more ships were built along the east river. A large majority of immigrants settling in the area in the late 1700s, were Scottish.

New Glasgow is home to a robust downtown core of shops, restaurants, clothing stores, gift shops, pubs and the like. A major revitalization plan was introduced recently that should keep New Glasgow beautiful and vibrant for years to come.

New Glasgow has an abundance of activities, starting with art and theatre, festivals and events, golf, guided tours, heritage sites, museums, Pictou County tourism, romantic restaurants and riverfront activities, as well as shopping. Enjoy the simpler pleasures, such as walking through trails or relaxing at the nearest beach.

New Glasgow accommodations include bed and breakfasts, inns, lodges, cottages, resorts and campgrounds.
