Acadian Removal at Remsheg, August 15, 1755

Creator(s): Wallace and Area Museum

The object of this project is to gather as much information as possible about the Remsheg Bay Acadians, in order for people to learn the story of this amazing group of settlers. They came to a difficult area of Nova Scotia (Acadia) at a difficult time. They brought with them their music, their religion, their work ethic, and their farming methods and traditions. They hoped to start a new life in a land of abundance.

Three hundred years later the footprints of these hard working people are nearly all erased. Their system of dyking and draining the land had broken down years ago; many parts are only visible to the experienced eye.

It is hoped the records collected in this project will generate interest in the life of the Acadians and will stand as an enduring tribute.
