Lower Five Islands is situated along the northern shores of the Minas Basin, as a member of Colchester County. In 1748, Lower Five Islands was inhabited by a few French settlers, but they would not stay in the area. Lower Five Islands was first granted to Benjamin Gerrish in 1767, but was not a permanent settlement until 1788, when William Corbett arrived. From there, many churches were erected, including a Presbyterian church, a Baptist church, a Methodist church and the United church. Main industries in Lower Five Islands are fishing, agriculture and forestry. Lower Five Islands is 76.8 km (47.7 mi.) west of Truro.
