Built in 1751 by the French, Fort Beauséjour was taken in 1755 by the British in a battle for control of Acadie.  The star-shaped fort saw combat again during the American Revolution in 1776 when it was attacked by rebel sympathizers.  It later defended the area during the war of 1812.

Admire the mighty Bay of Fundy from atop the Fort's bastions.  Ask interpreters about the Tantramar salt marshes and their dyke systems.  Explore the stone ruins and grassy ramparts.  Imagine life in the garrison by viewing interpretive exhibits, paintings and artifacts and browse through the gift shop. Guided tours available.
