In northern California, there is a little logging town called “Scotia.” According to a recent report in the North Coast Journal, that name might have a Maritime inspiration. The town was founded in 1863 as Forestville, but 25 years later, inhabitants decided to rename it because another nearby town had the same name. According to local legend, there was a large expatriate Maritime community in town at the time, so they had a coin toss to choose between the names “Scotia” and “Brunswick.”
