Hubbards,Nova Scotia is located on the Northern shore of St. Margarets Bay on the Aspotogan Peninsular,  Hubbards is neighbours to the communities of Simms Settlement and Queensland.

Hubbards contains the county line between Halifax County and Lunenburg County and is located in the Halifax Regional Municipality and  Chester Municipal District respectively.

Hubbards is located approximately 50 kilometres west of Halifax on Trunk 3

Hubbards was first settled by a second generation French-speaking Foreign Protestants John Dauphinee (1757–1835) and his brother Frederick. As with all those who first settled the east side of the Aspotogan Peninsular, the brothers arrived from across St. Margaret's Bay at French Village. Their father emigrated from France to Halifax and then to Lunenburg. Captain John Dauphinee settled on what became known as Dauphinee's Point. In 1820, John Dauphinee began a lumber mill on Mill Lake.

The origin of the name Hubbard's is probably an amalgamation of the local names Hibbard, Hubert or Hibbert. (The first School in Hubbards was named "Hibbert's Cove School".) The Village was Hubbards Cove until the word “Cove” was dropped (1905). The Fitzroy River which runs through Hubbards may have been named after British Prime Minister Augustus Fitzroy, 3rd Duke of Grafton (1735–1811).

In the earlier part of the 20th century, Hubbards was a successful fishing community.

Hubbards, Nova Scotia has many business's in the area & is a very popular destination for tourists.
