Location: Entrance to Halifax Harbour

History: Devil's Island, situated at the mouth of Halifax Harbour, is approximately 27 acres in size. The island was originally owned by Capt. John Rous and called Rous' Island. It eventually became known as Wood Island because of its heavy growth of forest, but a later fire destroyed the trees and hence the name change. The original Horns of Eastern Passage used to pasture sheep on the island before selling it to Andrew Phillip Henneberry about 1830. For over 110 years, Henneberrys lived on the island until the mid 1940s when most people were moved ashore during World War II. Devils Island resource
