. Shelburne (Shelburne, Nova Scotia) is second largest, with Liverpool and Lunenburg next. Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the host to several major music festivals and arts events, plus the Bluenose II, is generally considered to be the cultural capital of the South Shore, with Bridgewater its industrial centre. However, that is over-generalized, as several key industries, notably shipping and aerospace and software, have a presence in Lunenburg that exceeds that in Bridgewater. After the war, the British arranged transport to Nova Scotia for nearly 3500 Black Loyalists from the former Thirteen Colonies. John and Rose Gosman and their five-month-old daughter Fanny, born free in British lines, were recorded in the British embarkation record known as the ''Book of Negroes''. They had passage in 1783 on one of the last ships to leave New York for Nova Scotia. Measha's 4xgreat-grandparents first lived in Shelburne (Shelburne, Nova Scotia), but later settled in Fredericton. Brueggergosman learned of her African-American roots on ''Who Do You Think You Are'', a British-based program bought by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). According to Y-DNA genetic testing of her brother, it is likely their direct-line paternal African ancestors came from the Bassa (Bassa (Cameroon)) people of Cameroon.

In the fall of 1783, a second wave of settlers arrived in Shelburne. By 1784, the population of this new community is estimated to have been 17,000, making it the fourth-largest city in North America. ''The Americans'', novascotia.com. Retrieved March 14, 2011 But, initial hopes were short-lived; the settlement suffered from a lack of agricultural land, poor inland transportation links, and pioneers who knew how to develop frontier property, and these problems curtailed economic growth. The population fell sharply by the 1790s, leaving many abandoned buildings. However, the remaining residents gradually developed the harbour potential as a fishing and shipbuilding centre.

Later, this area became the shipyard of Joseph McGill. The Cox family also built their own ships and conducted extensive international trade. The former MacKay shipyard was located in Shelburne at Black's Brook. Donald McKay, famous in the United States for the clippers which he built at Boston, began his shipbuilding career in Shelburne. He was born at Jordan Falls in 1810, and left the area at the age of 16 to apprentice in New York. Led by master shipbuilders such as Amos Pentz and James Havelock Harding, Shelburne shipyards built many fishing schooners in the banks fishing era, as well as a notable research yacht inspired by fishing schooners, the schooner ''Blue Dolphin'' (Blue Dolphin (schooner)) in 1926. In May 1945, following Germany's surrender, U-889 surrendered to the RCN at Shelburne, Nova Scotia. Buildings Many of Shelburne's buildings date back to Loyalist times. The Shelburne County Museum is a restored home built in 1787 by David Nairn, a cooper (cooper (profession)) from Scotland. The present-day Christ Church (Anglican) is on the site of the original building of the same name, which was designed by Loyalist Isaac Hildreth and consecrated by Bishop Charles Inglis (Charles Inglis (bishop)) in 1790. The original structure was destroyed by fire in 1971. Tottie's Store is thought to have been built by John Tottie about the year 1800. thumb 260px The Shelburne County Museum, on left.

As the settlement was not yet self-supporting, many settlers put their houses up for sale or abandoned them. They left for England, New Brunswick, Upper Canada, and the United States. About half the population of African Americans left, many going to the new colony of Freetown in West Africa (now Sierra Leone). By the 1820s, the population of Shelburne had dwindled to about 300. Present day Although much smaller today, Shelburne remains the capital of the county which bears its name. It was incorporated as a Town on April 4, 1907. Many descendants of the first-generation immigrant Loyalists still live in the area today. Fishing remains a primary industry. Other economic activities include tourism, ship building and repair, aquaculture, logging, fish processing, and the manufacture of barrels, institutional furniture, granite monuments, and marine supplies.
