District 14 has a population of approximately 20,600 residents and is made up of the suburban communities of Middle/Upper Sackville, Beaver Bank, and Lucasville.
After the war of 1812, there was a major migration of black refugees from the United States who settled in many parts of Nova Scotia, including the area that is now the community of Lucasville. Today, Lucasville is an important source of African Nova Scotian history and culture, with many of the current residents descendant from these original black settlers.
The community of Beaver Bank dates back to 1776 when Loyalists from Boston settled there. Today, it is a developed community made up of many subdivisions and unique residential areas. Beaver Bank’s motto, “People Together with Nature”, reflects the many lakes, rivers and forests enjoyed by residents in the surrounding area.
