Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Westville is a town in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada. It is located immediately west of Stellarton and about four kilometres southwest of New Glasgow, the major town in the area.The name Westville was chosen because the community was west of the Albion Mines (now Stellarton). Founded in 1894 by Aaron Mackay,Westville has a long history of coal mining dating back to 1864 when coal was first discovered. The opening of the Acadia Mine followed in 1866. Westville, along with Stellarton, was once home to a thriving coal mining industry. At its peak, during WWI, Westville boasted three underground workings; the Black Diamond, the Acadia, and the Drummond. However, the last underground mine, the Drummond pit, closed in the 1970s. Extensive open-pit mining on the Drummond and Acadia sites was carried out throughout the 1980s and 90s, by Pioneer Coal Limited of Antigonish, NS.
