Sydney - Baddeck and Cape Breton Highlands
Sydney: Founded in 1758 by Col. J. F. W. Des Barres, Sydney was first settled by loyalists from New York State. Immigrants from the Scottish Highlands followed 20 years later and added much of the Scottish flavour we see today. Sydney boomed at the turn of the century with the building of the Dominion Steel and Coal Company plant at Whitney Pier.
