The Inverness County is a county in the Canadian province of
Nova Scotia. Its territory is almost contiguous with the Municipality of Inverness County, which only excludes the town of Port Hawkesbury.
Established as the County of Juste au Corps in 1835, Inverness County was given its present name in 1837. It was named after
Invernessin Scotland, the land from which many of the early settlers came. The boundaries of Inverness County had been previously defined when Cape Breton Islandwas divided by statute into three Districts in 1823. In 1996, the county was amalgamated into a single municipality with the exception of Port Hawkesbury.
Inverness County was established within the boundaries of the Northwestern District of Cape Breton Island.
