En eld is a ex-urban community located in the Shubenacadie Valley on the border of Hants and Halifax counties in Nova Scotia, Canada. Speci cally, En eld exists in both the East Hants Municipal District and the Halifax Regional Municipality and is divided by the Shubenacadie River. Perfectly positioned for country living residents love the location for its convenient commute to the downtown cores of Halifax and Dartmouth as well as its close proximity to Stan eld International Airport. Neighbouring Elmsdale o ers all the amenities of a modern and dynamic community such as schools, recreational facilities, shopping, banking, restaurants and entertainment.Many of these amenities are conveniently located and access to the 102 highway system is always nearby.


Grants of land around what is now En eld, were given after 1760. The  rst was given to Benjamin Franklin, a parcel of land on the side of the Shubenacadie River opposite the main part of the present village. Andrew Horne (son of Jacob Horne Sr., a German who enlisted in the 42nd Highland Regiment) was the  rst settler in En eld district, clearing a farm in the wilderness near the lock at Horne Settlement. En eld became a village comparatively late in the history of Nova Scotia, it does not appear in any early census of the province. Early
people living in the area were probably listed under Nine Mile River, Douglas or ‘The Crossing’ (En eld’s former name). It is recorded that En eld was named at a public meeting, called at Malcolm’s Pottery in 1862. Thomas B. Donaldson, suggested the name En eld. In 1863, due to his interest and perseverance, the name “En eld” was o cially adopted as the name for the settlement. It has been said that he took a fancy to the name when he resided in the town of En eld Connecticut.

Situated near the halfway point between Halifax and Truro,En eld was once home to a prominent railway station constructed by the Nova Scotia Railway and later the Intercolonial Railway and Canadian National Railway; it has since been demolished. During the mid-19th century, a system of locks on the Shubenacadie River in En eld assisted small vessels in navigating from the Bay of Fundy to nearby Shubenacadie Grand Lake as part of the Shubenacadie Canal.
