The Village is so well enacted it allows you step back to a time long gone by, without even realizing it! Beautiful grounds, pathways, flowers, gardens and homes belie the Acadian's torment of the past. From the "fisherman" mending nets (who we talked to for...More

This “living history” museum gives you some idea of how people lived 100+ years ago in his area where most French Canadiens were driven from their homes in the 1750s. Some stayed, some returned, and the people who work here are from families that have...More
