A small community on Long Island, Tiverton is a member of Digby County. Tiverton is positioned on the north eastern tip of Long Island, adjacent East Ferry on the Evangeline Trail. Tiverton can only be accessed via a short ferry ride from East Ferry. Thomas Mildon, a respected teacher in the 19th century and long time citizen of Digby County, was born in Tiverton, England, thus providing the basis for the town name. Tiverton became the official name in 1867, as it was previously known as Petite Passage. In 1930, Tiverton literally weathered a major storm that destroyed a large portion of its waterfront properties. A noteworthy industry in Tiverton is fishing. The enticing community of Digby
