Brooklyn, Nova Scotia

Brooklyn is a suburban community in the Region of Queens Municipality in Queens County.

Located on the east bank of the Mersey River opposite Liverpool, Brooklyn was placed on the map in 1907 when the Halifax and Southwestern Railway opened between Yarmouth and Halifax.

In 1929, Bowater Mersey Paper Company Limited opened a large pulp and paper plant in Brooklyn to produce newsprint; it remains the area's largest employer.

CN Rail abandoned rail service during the early 1980's and today Brooklyn is also famous for one of its previous residents since the completion of the restored heritage railway station in neighbouring Liverpool, which houses the Hank Snow Country Music Centre and the co-located Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame in honour of native-son Hank Snow.
