Herring Cove Road – a Drive Down Memory Lane

Spryfield (2011 population: 10,864) was founded in 1770, by Captain William Spry, who purchased land there and established the settlement with the aid of stationed soldiers from the nearby Halifax garrison. In 1783, he sold the property and returned to England. The name “Spryfield” is used to refer to the general area of Halifax’s South Mainland, which includes a number of communities along the Herring Cove and Purcell’s Cove Roads.
