Pugwash Nova Scotia Travel Information
The town of Pugwash once had a sign at its entrance that read "Home of the Thinkers," largely based on the 1957 international conference that local patron, Cyrus Eaton, hosted at his estate just north of Pugwash. The conference included world renowned scientists and discussed the state of nuclear weapons regarding the Cold War. Today, the town slogan is "World Famous for Peace."
Pugwash, among other things, is noted for having warm water and sandy beaches. It has been said that the waters in Pugwash are the warmest north of the Carolinas.
