… The situation of the College is extremely pleasant, and the most eligible that could be selected. It is about one mile from the town of Windsor, which is the most central point in the Province. The climate is peculiarly healthy; and it is remarkable that there never has occurred an instance of mortality among the Students since the first establishment of the institution. The buildings are erected upon an elevated spot, commanding in front a delightful view of the most improved and best cultivated parts of Nova- Scotia.. In the rear the scenery is equally fine, the landscape being much embellished by the meanderings of the Avon and St. Croix…

NOTE: We included this account of King’s College’s "View" by Haliburton in the "Clifton" section because Haliburton so loved the situation of his Alma Mater that he purchased the land adjoining it in 1833 on which he built his delightful Clifton Grove.
