Fort Beauséjour-Fort Cumberland National Historic Site

Recommended
The fort stands on the Chignecto Isthmus, a narrow strip of land joining New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. All around as far as the eye can see are plains, some of which are Tantramar marshes. The region, formerly Acadia settled by the French, was the scene of bloody conflict between the French and English. The conquered Acadians were deported. Of Fort Beauséjour, later called Fort Cumberland, all that remains are three restored underground blockhouses that can be visited and some scant ruins.
