River Hebert, Nova Scotia

River Hebert is a village on the River Hebert in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia. It is approximately 25 kilometres southwest of Amherst.

The village and the river are both named after Louis Hébert, a settler from Port Royal in 1604, who navigated the river.

Until the late 20th century, coal mining was the major industry in the area, but the last mine closed in 1981.

River Hebert is home to 1442 River Hebert Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, founded in 1949. River Hebert has two schools, high school and elementary, a grocery store, public library, medical centre, restaurant, and is home to Heritage Models, a tourist attraction that features scale models of local areas of interest, such as the home of Amos "King" Seamen.
