Glenholme is a small community, located in Colchester County, along the pretty Glooscap Trail (Highway 4). Glenholme is a waterfront community, found on the north eastern shores of Cobequid Bay. Glenholme is believed to have been named after the town of Glenholme in Scotland, which was changed by an act of legislation in 1909. Glenholme was settled in 1762 by James Flemming. A creamery existed in Glenholme until 1920, when it was closed down. Today, agriculture is the primary industry in Glenholme.
