Newellton is located on Cape Sable Island, on the southernmost tip of Nova Scotia. Newellton is part of Shelburne County. The land at Newellton was initially inhabited by the Mi'kmaq. The Acadians on Cape Sable Island were expelled in the 1750s, after being settled on the island for nearly one and a half centuries. The island was again settled after the expulsion by New England Planter. It's believed Newellton derives its name from the Newell family, which ventured to Newellton in 1812.
