Sackville, a part of Westmorland County, was first inhabited by the Mi'kmaq, but then in the beginning of the seventeenth century, the Acadians began to make way to New Brunswick. The town name was first implemented in the 1700s, named after George Germain, 1st Viscount Sackville, a colonial secretary. Throughout development, many different eras and settlers came and went, including Acadians, Loyalists, Planters, Yorkshire folk and others. The 1872 construction of the Intercolonial Railway turned Sackville into a place of importance and relevance, as development began to grow at a greatly increased pace. Eventually, in 1903, the community was incorporated. Sackville is 58.3 km (36.2 mi.) southeast of Moncton.
