Chester was officially founded in 1759 as the Shoreham grant, although French fishermen had already built a few houses on the site. The first permanent European-descended settlers were a group from Massachusetts who came to the area in 1761. A colorful part of its early history is known as the 'rouge ruse' wherein the townswomen, young in old, garbed in cloaks with their red lining worn outwards marched in an early morning of June 1782 to successfully convince American Privateers lying offshore to find another place to pillage. That ill fated village was Lunenburg.

Chester is one of the wealthiest communities in the province as a result of being a vacation and resort destination, with many seasonal and year-round estates and mansions. The nearby waters of Mahone Bay and its numerous islands are well known for yachting and have made Chester into a cruising destination. A Provincial ferry from the village provides a schedule of daily trips to Tancook Island.
