Accommodation

Acadia University has called the small but elegant town of Wolfville home since the institution's inception in 1838. Originally known as Mud Creek,the Town of Wolfville got its name in 1830 when two granddaughters of Judge Elisha DeWolfe convinced their postmaster uncle that a more suitable name was needed. The villagers chose the name Wolfville for their town. Today beautiful elm trees, manicured lawns, grand century old homes and a collection of speciality shops and services guide visitors down Wolfville's Main Street.
