History

Loyalists founded Freeport in 1784 establishing fishing and trading industries. Prior to this it had been inhabited by the Mi'kmaq First Nation.

Place names such as Petit Passage, Grand Passage and the Saint Mary’s Bay can be attributed to the French explorer, Samuel de Champlain, who first visited the area in 1604. However, the village itself was most likely named for Freeport, Maine, or because the water of and surrounding the harbour does not freeze during winter due to extreme tidal fluctuations, making it free from ice.[1]

In popular culture

The community is the final destination of Brad Pitt in the movie World War Z (2013), although this scene was not filmed in Freeport, but Lulworth Cove in the UK.
