Meteghan is located in Digby County, along the Evangeline Trail which hugs the western coastline of Nova Scotia's mainland. Meteghan is an unincorporated town and takes its name from the Indian word, Mitihikan, which means "blue rocks." Meteghan was founded by Acadian settlers Prudent Robichaud, Joseph LeBlanc and other various Acadian families in 1785. Meteghan is the largest community in the predominantly Acadian Clare Municipal District. In the 1890s, Meteghan built its first dry dock and became a shipbuilding community. Present day industries in Meteghan include fishing, mainly for crab and lobster.

Located on the Meteghan River, the Bangor Sawmill Museum is a restored, 18th century water powered lumber mill. This museum offers insight into the history of the once operating mill and the people who worked in it. Captain's Adventure Eco Boat Tours offers tourists with a trip to the cove, a look into the history there as well as bird-watching and seal-watching. As well, Meteghan is home to numerous fine Acadian-style restaurants. Meteghan features an Acadian festival, live performances, and of course, vast, beautiful scenery. Meteghan is situated just 67.9 km (42.2 mi.) south of Digby.
