Geography

Middle Sackville is located immediately north of Lower Sackville and south of Upper Sackville. It is one of several communities situated in Census Subdivision C, which experienced a 7% population growth rate between 1996-2001.

History

As a result of its unincorporated status until 1996, Middle Sackville and adjacent unincorporated communities such as Lower Sackville and Upper Sackville did not benefit from appropriate planning and are an example of urban sprawl. The boundaries for the three Sackville communities were "officially" defined in 2013 by HRM and areas (such as the popular Millwood subdivision) that in the past were informally called Lower Sackville were changed to Middle Sackville. Boundaries were based on historic accounts of the areas.

Middle Sackville was the site of an early black community in the area of Maroon Hill. The Maroons were blacks brought in from Jamaica to help with the building of the Halifax Citadel and other capital works. The Maroons did not settle permanently and were later relocated to Freetown by the British.
