Woodville, Nova Scotia

Woodville is a community located in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, north of Cambridge and Waterville and at the foot of the North Mountain in Kings County.

Centred along Route 221, Woodville has a fire department, a Baptist Church, two auto body shops, and many family-run farms. A community centre is located in the former school, built in 1942. The former Wesley Knox United Church, built in 1921, was sold in 2006 is now a residence and artist's workshop.

Each spring during the Apple Blossom Festival, the community comes together to stage a chicken barbecue on Boates' farm the Sunday of the festival, which is known for its chicken recipe that draws visitors from nearby towns.

The community's name is believed to be based on a prominent stand of woods or the name of an early settler. It was once known as Kinsmans Corner. Woodville became a stop on the Cornwallis Valley Railway branch line of the Dominion Atlantic Railway in 1914 which greatly stimulated apple production. Many large orchards remain in operation.
