Yarmouth, referred to by many as the gateway to Nova Scotia, was first laid out in 1759, but incorporated in 1890. At one time Yarmouth was home to the most productive shipbuilding centre in the world until wooden ships became outdated. With a decline in shipbuilding production, investors transferred their time and money into factories, railways and steamships. Today, Yarmouth's ferry services continue to connect to important cities such as Boston and New York. Yarmouth is still a prominent fishing port.
During WWII, Yarmouth was a top training centre for the Navy. In fact, in 1942, local Royal Canadian Air Force Bomber Reconnaissance Squadron 113 became the first in Eastern Air Command to strike down an enemy U-boat, just 160 km (100 mi.) south of Yarmouth.

Yarmouth County Museum and Archives, a museum that preserves Yarmouth's own rich history, offers visitors insight into Yarmouth and its county. Yarmouth is home to several beaches and about twenty summer festivals. Two art galleries, three golf courses, various historical sites, almost twenty lighthouses and plenty other attractions fill Yarmouth's rich tourism market. For those interested in winter travel, Yarmouth averages 191 days of fog, creating an eerie, unique feel.
